Associate Professor

Laura Newlon



Laura Hart Newlon is an artist, writer, and educator interested in the resonance and dissonance between images and objects. Newlon's interdisciplinary practice evolves out of a fascination with materiality, image-making, and the act of looking as a cultural practice.

Newlon has recently exhibited work at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art (New Orleans), SOIL (Seattle), Specialist (Seattle), Triumph (Chicago), ADDS DONNA (Chicago), Los Angeles Center for Digital Art (LA), Roots & Culture (Chicago), the Baltimore Art Fair (Baltimore), and LVL3 (Chicago). She has been honored with the "Claire Rosen and Samuel Edes Prize for Emerging Artists," the "John Quincy Adams Fellowship," a "Cornish Faculty Development Grant," and residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, The Wassaic Project, and ACRE. Her work is included in the holdings of the Museum of Contemporary Photography, the Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection, and the Photographic Center Northwest.
