Artist Lecture: Lori Nix, The City
Friday, October 25, 6:30 PM
Tickets: $10, $8 Members
Co-partnered with G.Gibson Gallery
Lori Nix’s photographs, saturated with color and infused with a dark sense of humor, turn the notion of the traditional landscape on it head. Painstakingly created in miniature, her constructed scenes depict a detailed world where all is not as it seems. Public spaces dedicated to History and Science (and a few intimate spaces) lie deteriorating and neglected while nature slowly takes them back. In her latest series, “The City” as well as her previous works, Nix emotes the clash between catastrophe and beauty to depict their co-dependence. She gives the viewer an incidental advantage by offering fenced in tragedies that inherently raise awareness and inspire reflection on our everyday actions and means of survival.
Lori Nix lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She holds advanced degrees in ceramics and photography from Truman State University and Ohio University. Her work has been shown across the United States with exhibitions at ClampArt Gallery, New York, NY, The George Eastman House, G. Gibson Gallery in Seattle, WA, Miller Block Gallery, Boston, MA, the California Museum of Photography, and the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago.
