<h2>David Uzochukwu</h2>'s Work

David Uzochukwu

One of the best-known names in photography, the visual artist and photographer has stunned the industry with his personal investigations of strength, masculinity, resilience and belonging, expressed through digital reconfigured landscapes and the idea of the surreal. Based in Berlin, a few years ago, we saw him capture the human vulnerability of FKA twigs in Crack Magazine’s Dream Warrior Issue. Elsewhere he has collaborated with Pharrell Williams and Louis XIII Cognac, created his first short film, all while pursuing a degree in Philosophy in Berlin. At June’s Nicer Tuesdays, we’ll chat to David at length about how he crafts fantastical stories through visual art and photography, and how he works with his subjects to craft a narrative that will later be finished digitally.

<h2>Nigel Poor</h2>'s Work

Nigel Poor

Nigel Poor is an artist, educator and co-creator of the acclaimed podcast Ear Hustle; where she explores the daily realities of prison life as well as stories from the outside, post-incarceration. In 2011, she began teaching a history of photography class through the Prison University Project at San Quentin State Prison which quickly took on a new creative life of its own. As neither books nor cameras were allowed into the prison, Nigel took an original approach to the class, conducting inventive mapping exercises which create kind of “verbal photographs”. As the project progressed, Nigel came across thousands of negatives in the prison’s archive, taken by former correction officers. It became a creative fascination for the students, giving those involved with the project a new opportunity to share their stories and reflect on their time in prison. The new book The San Quentin Project, captures this.

<h2>Tate Modern</h2>'s Work

Tate Modern

One of the most innovative artists and designers of the 20th-century avant-garde, Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889-1943) challenged the borders between abstract art, design and craft. Showing from 15 July - 17 October 2021, Tate Modern’s major exhibition will be the first in the UK to trace Taeuber-Arp’s accomplished career as a painter, architect, teacher, writer, and designer of textiles, marionettes and interiors. Bringing together over 200 objects from collections across Europe and America, the exhibition will show how she blazed a new path for the development of abstraction.
