13 November 2019
Hours and Location
Wednesday 13th November
103 Murray Grove, Hoxton, London N1 7QP
Slideshow and Talk 7pm
Nicholas Muellner will present Making Doubles, a scripted slide reading based on the opening essay of his new book, Lacuna Park: Essays and other Adventures in Photography (SPBH Editions, 2019). The slide reading, incorporating dozens of images not included in the book, from old iPhone photos to his newest experiments in portraiture, attempts to trace some links between our own appearances in images, and our ongoing submission to the seductions of coercive ideology. Intertwining memoir, reportage, fiction and theory, Muellner’s new image-text book asks: what is existentially at stake today in the making and viewing of photographs?
Nicholas Muellner is a Los Angeles-based artist and writer and founding co-director of the Image Text MFA and ITI Press at Ithaca College, NY. His previous books include In Most Tides an Island and The Amnesia Pavilions. Muellner’s work has been widely published and exhibited, and recognized by Guggenheim, MacDowell and Yaddo Colony Fellowships.
