MMoCA: Rick Axsom Gallery Talk

October 9, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

James Cagle’s photographs cause us to focus on elements of our surroundings that might otherwise go unnoticed. His acute sensibilities, formal rigor, and embrace of the quotidian imbue his works with an extraordinary level of intimacy. Join us for a remote gallery talk with MMoCA curator emeritus Richard H. Axsom, who will discuss Cagle’s penetrating vision, and the associative and structural devices he employs in James Cagle: With an Open Eye.
Rick Axsom is MMoCA’s curator emeritus and a nationally recognized art writer who has published definitive texts on the prints of Frank Stella, Claes Oldenburg, Terry Winters, and Ellsworth Kelly. He is also professor emeritus of art history at the University of Michigan, where he taught courses on modern and contemporary art.
