Nottingham Trent University provides expert support to the Guggenheim Museum, New York
Senior lecturer in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University, Andy Pepper, has been commissioned by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, to provide expert advice about how artists work with holography as a creative medium.
The Guggenheim Museum is an internationally renowned art museum located in Manhattan, New York City. The museum is home to a large collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, early Modern, and contemporary art and features special exhibitions throughout the year.
A text has been published on the Guggenheim blog to coincide with the recently opened exhibition of new work by the Hugo Boss Prize-winning artist Deana Lawson who included holograms as part of her current solo exhibition, which runs until October.
The Guggenheim invited Andy to author the post, knowing of his interest in art holography, and worked with him to develop and illustrate the supportive material which is now live on their site: read the 'Holography: How Artists Sculpt with Light, Space, and Time' article here.
Andy, of the School of Art & Design, commented: “It was certainly a challenge to do justice to the remarkable artists who have used and developed creative holography, but the Guggenheim staff were incredibly helpful and extremely sensitive to producing supportive material for their new exhibition.”
