Virtual Visit: Gallery Talk with Rick Axsom
October 30 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Tune in on Facebook Live.
James Cagle’s photographs cause us to focus on elements of our surroundings that might otherwise go unnoticed. His acute sensibilities, formal rigor, and embrace of the quotidian imbue his works with an extraordinary level of intimacy. MMoCA curator emeritus Richard H. Axsom discusses Cagle’s penetrating vision, and the associative and structural devices he employs.
Rick Axsom is MMoCA’s curator emeritus and a nationally recognized art writer who has published definitive texts on the prints of Frank Stella, Claes Oldenburg, Terry Winters, and Ellsworth Kelly. He is also professor emeritus of art history at the University of Michigan, where he taught courses on modern and contemporary art.
James Cagle: A Final Meditation on Art is on view in the museum’s State Street Gallery through January 31, 2021.
