Studio portrait of Lily Lee.

Two works by Lily Lee, an assistant professor in the Department of Art, Design and Visual Studies, are part of an exhibition, His-ter’-ee-uh at ARC Gallery in Chicago.

The exhibition, on display through March 30, explores issues of structural sexism by considering historic views of female hysteria in relationship to contemporary issues. Lee’s work that will be included in this exhibition, The Shroud of Bitter Creek Betty, and The Shroud of Devil’s Gate Jane Doe, are part of her recent body of work, the Great Basin Murders, based on a series of unsolved crimes in the Intermountain West.¬†Olive Stefanski, an independent artist and curator, juried the exhibition.
