Freelance / Independent Curator
Susan Aurinko, a photographer and curator, has shown her work in France, Italy, and India, as well as in the US. Her exhibition about India, entitled STILL POINT INDIA, opened at ThinkArt Gallery in Chicago, was shown at Kriti Gallery in Varanasi India in February 2013, and is available as a book of the same name. In 2007, the proposed cover image for the book STILL POINT INDIA won both a jury Honorable Mention and a Public Choice Prize from Px3 in Paris. Aurinko’s work appears on many book covers, including The Stranger Among Us, Ariel, Scar Tissue, Slut Lullabies, and Bound and Broken, and four of her photographs are included in the Museum of Contemporary Photography’s permanent collection. In addition, many of her images hang in private collections in France, Italy, India, the UK, Monaco, and across the US. In July of 2017, Aurinko’s Searching for Jehanne – The Joan of Arc Project will open as a solo exhibition at LUMA (Loyola University Museum of Art) on Michigan Avenue, with plans to travel it from there after its closing in October.
