The Nicholson Project is pleased to present their latest exhibit, a portrait series titled Perception x Agency, by filmmaker, photographer and resident artist, Dominic Green.  The exhibit examines the perception and agency of black and brown bodies, and runs through April 18, 2020.

“I’m honored to be part of The Nicholson Project’s artist-in-residence program and look forward to using the space and resources to further develop the Perception x Agency exhibit,” said Green, 26.  Green, a rising star in the film world, has released several short films, including  “The Black Body” (2018), “Can Your See Me” (2018) and “Ports of Habit” (2019). On February 29, Green debuted “Awaken, Brown Eyes” as part of the Atlas Intersections Festival 2020.  He has also received cinematographer credits on two other projects.

“We’re elated to have Dominic as our newest resident artist and share his work with the community,” said Stefanie Reiser, The Nicholson Project founder. “His artistic lens is thoughtful, sensitive and genuine. Dominic captures real emotion in every piece.  I’m confident these feelings will resonate with our audience and exhibit visitors.”

Green is currently a drama teacher at Friendship Public Charter School. The Nicholson Project portrait series is his third artist residency and fourth photo exhibit.

Founded in 2019, The Nicholson Project’s artist-in-residence program was created to provide artists with safe, equitable space to work on their studio practice and/or produce onsite activations.  Artists are carefully selected and receive a monthly stipend, along with housing in the completed renovated Nicholson Street home for the duration of their residency.

The Nicholson Project is located at 2310 Nicholson Street SE. For more information about The Nicholson Project, visit thenicholsonproject.org.
