Artist Updates | Winter 2021
The world has changed so much in a year but one thing remains the same: artists continue to make art…thank goodness!
1 Nancy Floyd has certainly made her mark in the press! Her continuing project Weathering Time was recently been featured in Buzzfeed’s 10 Photo Stories That Will Challenge Your View Of The World and The New Yorker among others.
The International Center of Photography chose Floyd last year as the winner for its first ever photobook award. The inaugural award attracted nearly 300 entrants from 45 countries. Floyd will have her first photo book designed, edited, printed, and published by the ICP/GOST imprint, with the opportunity to display the work at the new International Center of Photography space at Essex Crossing in New York City. A date will be announced soon. The award aims to promote and support the work of previously unpublished photographers and artists through the production of a first photo book by the ICP/GOST imprint.

5 Vesna Pavlović’s second book, Stagecraft, is set to be released March 2021. Vesna Pavlović: Stagecraft features four extensive bodies of the photographer’s work, spanning from the early 2000s to today—photographs of the Yugoslav socialist modernist hotel spaces from her internationally recognized series “Hotels”; photographs of the ceremonial space of the Yugoslav Presidential Palace in Belgrade from the series “Collection/Kolekcija” and the recent “Fabrics of Socialism” and “Sites of Memory” series exploring the archives of the Museum of Yugoslav History.

6 Pete Schulte recently completed a wall drawing at The Lamar Dodd School of Art at The University of Georgia through their program Wall Works. Wall Works is a program at the Dodd Galleries that invites an individual artist to create a semester long, site-specific wall installation in the Plaza Gallery.
Pete Schulte’s, Untitled (Plaza), is an installation comprised of two wall drawings that exist as simultaneity – as twins and opposites. The installation is on view through May 2021. Visit Schulte’s instagram for more images.
