In addition to his public presentation, Muellner will lead a writing workshop on Thursday, March 19, from 9am to 11am in Frick Fine Arts 104. The workshop will consist of exercises geared toward expanding the language we use to talk about images and will be open to students and faculty at the University of Pittsburgh. Space will be limited. Stay tuned for registration details.

Nicholas Muellner's artistic practice operates at the intersection of photography and writing. Through books, exhibitions, and slide lectures, his projects investigate the limits of photography as a documentary pursuit and as an interface to literary, political, and personal narratives. His recent image-text books include The Photograph Commands Indifference (A-Jump Books, 2009) and The Amnesia Pavilions (A-Jump Books, 2011). His 2017 book In Most Tides An Island (SPBH Editions, 2017) was shortlisted for the Aperture/Paris Photo Photobook of the Year Award, and he is a 2018 Guggenheim Fellow in Photography. He codirects the Image Text MFA and Press at Ithaca College.
