The Louise and Bernard Palitz Gallery at Syracuse University Lubin House presents Kamikaze Curiosity: Louisa Chase Prints, on view beginning October 21.  Curated by Andrew Saluti, assistant professor/ program coordinator in the Graduate Program in Museum Studies at Syracuse University, this exhibition celebrates the recent gift of 58 prints and two portfolios donated to the university by the Louisa Chase Estate.


Painter and printmaker Louisa Chase’73 (1951-2016) was engaged in a lifelong expedition to try and capture external images of an internal state. A productive and experimental printmaker, Chase worked with the who’s who of publishers and workshops; and was included in the foremost contemporary print exhibitions and publications of the period.  The selected works illustrate the evolution of the Chase’s distinct visual vocabulary and adeptness in the medium, giving insight into the artist’s enduring exploration, as she described, as a ‘kamikaze curiosity.’
