Nic Nicosia: Real Pictures, 1979-1999
Contemporary Arts Museum, 1999 - Photography - 103 pages
This is the first and only book dedicated to Nic Nicosia's work and covers 20 years of activity by this Dallas-based artist whose photographs and films comment on suburban America, warts and all. Nicosa was at the forefront of the revolutionary changes taking place in photography in the early 80s when artists began to make staged and manipulated color photographs, often presented in a large format. The book focuses on nine series of photographs made since 1979 along with four films/videos he has made since 1977. The catalogue is richly illustrated and includes essays by Dana Frits-Hansen, Lynn M. Herbert, and Dave Hickey. Nicosa was born in 1951 in Dallas, Texas, where he currently lives. His works are in the collections of numerous museums including the Guggenheim, New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
