EXHIBITION: PIVOT: TERENCE NICHOLSON

Sat. May 7– Sat. July 2, 2022

Terence Nicholson’s works are the product of, but not necessarily defined by, the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although he had no desire for the body of work to focus on the pandemic specifically, its impact was unavoidable.

Nicholson was challenged to continue the making of objects during a time of limited space due to social distancing mandates and calls to stay indoors during the early days of the pandemic. As a result, he created a series of works on plexiglass, photo transfer, and video as well as smaller assemblages.

EXHIBITION: RASHAD ALI MUHAMMAD
