Jack Nelson: On the Art of Watching People Who Use Machines Exhibit

October 20, 2021November 30, 2021 EDT

Bird Library, 1st Floor

Jack Nelson is an artist whose work defies easy classification. Born in Chicago, Illinois in 1929 and primarily active in the 1960s through the 1970s, he explored the metaphysical aspects of religion and nature through sculptures, drawings, collages and video art. His work shows similarities to the contemptuous Fluxus and Pop movements but displays humanistic tendencies often lacking in his conceptual peers. Nelson was an instructor at Syracuse University, helping to form the Department of Experimental Studios, a division of the College of Visual and Performing Arts. This exhibit shares his art through rare and never-before-seen artifacts and documents.
