Exhibition & Residency:
May 1 – May 30, 2012
Hailing from Johannesburg, South Africa, Nadine Hutton works across both documentary and contemporary art photographic genres, frequently incorporating video and performance in her practice. Hutton’s work investigates questions of gender and identity, and offers insight into disenfranchised and marginalized sectors of society. With a background in photojournalism, Hutton’s videos and photographs often straddle the liminal terrain between documentation and fine art. Many works resemble collective portraits, where the artist defines a space for subjects who may be overlooked by the mainstream. For 14 years she served as chief photographer at the Mail & Guardian in Johannesburg where her work won several awards. She is a Ruth First fellow and was recently awarded an international artists’ residency by the Africa Centre.
