Making Sense of Pictures

Exhibition Running: May 4 – 29, 2016
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 5, 6 – 8 pm
Artist Talk: Sunday, May 15, 2pm
Dancer / Dance is intended to provoke viewers to consider the relationship between word and image as they attempt to read photographs in gallery settings, in particular, but also in everyday contexts. Like the dancer and the dance, image and word are inextricably joined in the interpretive process. Despite the often explicit or literal content of these images, we always require the word to help us come to our understandings of them. “Even the uncaptioned image framed and isolated on a gallery wall, is invaded by language when it is looked at” (Victor Burgin, 1982).
Allan Neilsen is a photographic artist and member of ViewPoint Gallery of Contemporary Photography in Halifax ,Nova Scotia.
