The first retrospective of the work of renowned sculptor Doris Salcedo opens this Saturday at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, an exhibition that was over five years in the making. Salcedo is perhaps most famous for her work Shibboleth, a more than 500-foot-long crack in the floor of Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern in London in 2007. Visitors to the MCA Chicago retrospective can expect to be immersed in the meticulously handcrafted sculptures and site-specific installations from the past fifteen years of Salcedo’s career. 

The catalogue for the exhibition was designed by New York–based designer Joseph Logan and produced by Marquand Books. Featuring over one hundred illustrations and divided between two different papers, the catalogue was printed in Verona, Italy, by Graphicom. The exhibition’s curators, Julie Rodrigues Widholm and Madeleine Grynsztein, edited the catalogue, which features contributions by Elizabeth Adan, Katherine Brinson, Helen Molesworth, and Doris Salcedo.

The exhibition will be at the MCA Chicago Februrary 21 through May 24, 2015, followed by stops in New York and Miami. To purchase a copy of Doris Salcedo, visit the University of Chicago Press.
