Juxtapoz features Photography Professor Nicholas Nixon's exhibition, Persistence of Vision, on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston.
Artsy examines classic poses that are repeatedly assumed by figures of Western art history - including "contrapposto," as demonstrated by MassArt alumna Genevieve Gaignard '07 Certificate Photography.
Mark Feeny from The Boston Globe:
"Nixon needs no introduction around here. For many years, he’s been one of the starriest names in what has long been a very starry photography faculty at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. And since his inclusion in the ground-breaking 1975 exhibition 'New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape,' Nixon has had a national, and eventually international, reputation for decades."
Aline Smithson of Lenscratch notes about Photography Professor Nicholas Nixon's work: "Nicholas has a legacy of finding beauty in our humanness and this legacy in now in an extensive exhibition at The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (ICA)."
After a year of receiving mentorship from industry specialists, alumnus Alejandra Carles-Tolra '13 MFA Photography presents Where We Belong for this year's Jerwood/Photoworks Awards exhibition.
"Nixon’s pictures invite us to slow down, look, and reflect on the nature of human relationships." - Eva Respini, Chief Curator, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston about Professor Nick Nixon's latest exhibition, Nicholas Nixon: Persistence of Vision, now on view at the ICA Boston.
Renowned photographer and MassArt Professor Nick Nixon's Persistence of Vision will open at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston on December 13, 2017, on view through April 22, 2018.
"The casual glances people share can take on a deeper significance, and what initially appears subjective and intimate is quite often a commentary on the larger contours of life." - MassArt alumnus David Hilliard '92 BFA Photography on his work, now on view at Schneider Gallery in Chicago, IL.
