James Nares: Street and Pendulum

Jan. 27, 2017 10:00 a.m. - April 16, 2017, 5:00 p.m.

James Nares: Street and Pendulum, displayed in the Milwaukee Art Museum’s Herzfeld Center for Photography and Media Arts, features the artist’s mesmerizing 61-minute high-definition video Street and the energy of a wrecking ball in Pendulum. Describing Street as “a love letter to my adopted home,” the London native uses innovative technology to provide unique perspectives on the details of New York City street life. The accompanying musical score was composed and performed by Sonic Youth co-founder and guitarist Thurston Moore. Pendulum captures the long arc of a wrecking ball as it moves through the deserted Tribeca neighborhood in 1976 to explore movement, rhythm and repetition. This exhibition complements the gallery’s simultaneous showing of Helen Levitt: In the Street, which similarly looks at the details of urban living but through the unscripted interactions of its residents.
