Jeanette May (Art MFA 87)

Jeanette May (Art MFA 87) will have a solo exhibition, “Tech Vanitas,” at A.R.C. Gallery in Chicago, Illinois, April 30-May 22, 2021. May’s still-life photographs embrace anxiety over new technology and love for beautifully designed, obsolete machines. Her photographs suggest both product photography and 17th century Dutch vanitas paintings with their air of craft guilds, international trade, and personal wealth.
