N/N David Hilliard
Sept. 28 - Dec. 9, 2007

The New Britain Museum of American Art featured genre photographer David Hilliard in a NEW/NOW exhibition that was on view until Dec. 29, 2007.

Hilliard documents his life and the life of those around him in panoramic photographs, which are displayed in a series of separate panels. He says, “This sequencing of photographs and shifting of focal planes allows me the luxury of guiding the viewer across the photograph, directing their eye; an effect which could not be achieved through a single image.”

Hilliard’s work has been shown at museums around the U.S., Spain, Italy, Ukraine, and Germany; and featured in a wide rage of reviews and publications. He graduated with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from the Massachusetts College of Art, and a Masters from Yale University School of Fine Arts. He is currently an assistant professor of Photography at the Massachusetts College of Art and visiting faculty at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado.

This is the 12th year for the NEW/NOW juried series of exhibitions. As many as six emerging artists are showcased annually. NEW/NOW provides diverse audiences the opportunity to view and learn about significant developments in contemporary art and to understand those developments in relation to other trends and issues of the past and present as represented in the context of the NBMAA’s collection of American art. There is no geographical limit for the selection of the artists and no limitation as to medium or subject.
