Our current exhibition presents more than 100 works from the private collection of Douglas Nielsen, choreographer and professor at the University of Arizona School of Dance. Featuring photographs and photo-based prints by artists as diverse as Diane Arbus, John Baldessari, Jo Ann Callis, Jimmy DeSana, Elliott Erwitt, Bruce Nauman, and Cindy Sherman, the exhibition’s unique installation highlights the dramatic and physical tension that can result when a figure stands before the camera’s lens.
