States of America exhibition
Last night was the opening of the “States of America” exhibition in Nottingham Contemporary. I was there.
The States of America exhibition presents an overview of USA through the lens of 17 photographers, spanning a period from 1960’s to the early 1990’s. It is a fantastic selection presented in for lines of enquiry:
- Subject or Object
- A Changing Landscape
- Interiors and Private spaces
- Come Together
My personal favourites were a selection of Diane Arbus’s, Mary Ellen Mark’s and William Egleston’s work.
Artists in the exhibition include : Diane Arbus, Dawoud Bey, Mark Cohen, Bruce Davidson, Louis Drape, William Egleston, Lee Friedlander, Jim Goldberg, Danny Lyon, Mary Ellen Mark, Nicholas Nixon, Bill Owens, Milton Rogovin, Stephen Shore, Ming Smith, Joseph Szabo and Gary Winograd.
Exhibition has been curated by Irene Aristizabal and Aby Spinks
With more than 250 exhibited works there is something for everyone. If you call yourself a photographer this is the exhibition you shouldn’t miss….
