Alison Ruttan: when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail (click on image to enlarge)

 

In this new installation situated in all three Michigan Avenue Galleries, the artist flanks her earlier photographic and video project, based on Jane Goodall’s disturbing study of Chimpanzee behavior, with a new and continuing series of ceramic maquettes based on photographic documentation of recent global sites of conflict.
