Opening Reception - Sunday, July 27, 1-4pm, and a performance on Saturday, August 2, 7pm.

The Hysterical Alphabet (WhiteWalls), written by Terri Kapsalis and illustrated by Gina Litherland, is an abecedary offering a condensed history of hysteria with levity, playfulness, and critical insight, drawn from medical writings and images ranging from ancient Egypt to the present. Each letter in The Hysterical Alphabet introduces an episode direct from the annals of medical lore, tracking centuries of female malady, heartily disproving the theory that time heals all wombs.

The Hysterical Alphabet exhibition features Gina Litherland's original drawings including the cover art and the hysterical alphabet from A to Z.


Terri Kapsalis' recent fiction, "Most Beautiful Experiments," was published inParakeet and nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Other writings have appeared in theBaffler, new formations, Public, andLusitania. She is the author of Public Privates: Performing Gynecology from Both Ends of the Speculum (Duke University Press). She is a founding member of Theater Oobleck and teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. 

Gina Litherland's art and writings have been published worldwide in journals and periodicals associated with contemporary surrealism. Litherland's most recent work has been the subject of solo museum exhibitions at the James Watrous Gallery of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts, and Letters and the Haggerty Museum of Art at Marquette University in Milwaukee. Her work as a painter is represented by Tory Folliard Gallery in Milwaukee and Corbett vs. Dempsey in Chicago.
