“Revising History is an exhibition of new photographic work by Chicago artist Jennifer Greenburg. The exhibition features a series of manufactured images Greenburg created in which individuals in found, vintage negatives are replaced with her own image. She commandeers source material from other people‚Äôs lives, thus hijacking their memories as her own. The resulting images are highly believable, as Greenburg is seamlessly integrated into an array of interiors, interacting with people from the original photographs and engaging in the action of the captured moment. The images depict events ranging from an office party to the last seconds of a ping pong competition, and just like most snapshots, they memorialize events that are only fleetingly significant.

Greenburg is an Assistant Professor of Photography at Indiana University Northwest, Gary, IN. She holds a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from The University of Chicago. Greenburg has exhibited internationally and is represented by Martha Schneider Gallery, Chicago, IL and JDC Gallery, San Diego, CA. A full-length monograph on her work, The Rockabillies was published by the Center for American Places in 2009″
