DESCRIPTION

Desire For Magic:
Patrick Nagatani 1978-2008

September 10 to December 19, 2010

The University of New Mexico Art Museum is honored to present the retrospective Desire for Magic: Patrick Nagatani 1978-2008. This project is the first comprehensive analysis of the many and varied projects of New Mexico-based photographer Patrick Nagatani who has worked as a photographer and artist since the 1970s. It will include examples from his Nagatani/Tracey Polaroid Collaborations, the Japanese American Concentration Camp portfolio, Nuclear Enchantment, Novellas, Nagatani/Ryoichi Excavations, Chromatherapy series; and, the large-scale masking tape works, Tape-estries. This exhibition is the first to bring together these tour-de-force and seminal projects thus providing a unique opportunity to see the range of Nagatani’s directorial approach and the breadth of his contributions to color photography.

The exhibition is accompanied by a 260 page full-color publication, edited by curator Michele M. Penhall with essays by leading authorities in the field.
