CEC ArtsLink presents:
The Amnesia Pavilions is an annotated slideshow based on Nicholas Muellner’s new book of photographs and writing, recently named by Time Magazine a top photo book of 2011. This autobiographical safari returns to the last days of Soviet Russia in search of both a missing friend and a lost version of the author’s former self. The Amnesia Pavilions argues for the incommensurability of the past and the present, and examines photography’s personal, vernacular and historical role in both bridging and broadening the temporal chasm of understanding.
Nicholas Muellner in attendance for discussion along with photographer Dan Torop and curator Jim Supanick.
Previously Nicholas Muellner curated “Now is the Winter”, an exhibition of ten contemporary US and Russian artists. The exhibition, co-curated by Russia curator Mikhail Sindlin was mounted at the Moscow non-profit space Proekt_Fabrika in May and June. A symposium took place, and an extensive bi-lingual catalogue of the artists’ work, essays and interviews will be published following the exhibition and symposium.
