Anthony Luensman’s first major solo show in five years, Taint represents the increased influence in his work with photography and moving images. The exhibition features a series of animated portraits as video projections upon windows, architecturally focused installations, and photographs from his ongoing studio series that address the body as landscape and the intersection of human politics. Moving across disciplines, his beguiling aesthetic hints at the visual and sensual phenomenon hovering beneath the surface.
Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1966, Luensman received a bachelor’s degree in studio arts from Kenyon College. His wide-ranging interests and multimedia capabilities have led to successful collaborations in music, dance, and installation, as well as a series of national and international residencies. In 2007, the Cincinnati Art Museum invited Luensman to create Arenas, a series of sculpture and installations presented in the special exhibition gallery and integrated throughout the permanent collection. A 2008 recipient of the Efroymson Contemporary Arts Fellowship, Luensman currently resides in Cincinnati.

The Center consists of three stunning performance spaces: Procter & Gamble Hall, Jarson-Kaplan Theater, and Fifth Third Bank Theater.
