deb3321 is very pleased to have Nick return to the studio.
Nick will lecture about the history of 20th century Modernism discussing their processes and strategies for creating the “modernist” space. Modernism, the period of breaking with tradition and narrative on behalf of experimentation, strove for new ways of seeing. The concepts of space and vision came from not one but a myriad of perspectives challenging the academic and didactic, making visual form and its concepts of space relevant to the 20th century experience. Nick will additionally show his own work and discuss his processes within the context of his presentation
