Eve Schillo, Assistant Curator in the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department, has worked on a range of exhibitions in her 20+ years with LACMA, including Cuban photography after the revolution, multi-media work by author/artist William S. Burroughs, an ongoing self-portraiture series, Pictorialist displays, and the still and moving imagery of Katy Grannan and Charlie White.
At LACMA, she curates exhibitions that span photographic history for galleries dedicated to American, Latin American, Modern, Contemporary and Japanese Art, as well as photo-specific spaces.
Recent projects include an exhibition celebrating Mexican photographer Mariana Yampolsky; This Is Not a Selfie; Sarah Charlesworth: Doubleworld; and Road Trip: Photography and the American West. She is working on an exhibition on California photography spanning the early 1900s to the present. For that reason, she’s reading about the West, as the histories of the area don’t become untwined until statehood and pesky things like borders, see Inland by Téa Obreht.
