Tilt Gallery's 6th annual "Photography Re-Imagined: Visual Storytelling" juried show- features 25 art pieces, which have been selected by the internationally acclaimed photographer, Cig Harvey, out of 400 entries.
Cig's photographs and artist’s books have been exhibited widely and are in the permanent collections of major museums and collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Farnsworth Museum, Rockland, and the International Museum of Photography, George Eastman House, Rochester. She was nominated for the 2013 John Gutmann Award and was a finalist at Prix Virginia, an international photography prize for women.
Cig had her first solo museum show at The Stenersen Museum, Oslo, Norway, in the spring of 2012 in conjunction with the release of her first monograph, “You Look At Me Like An Emergency,” Schilt Publishing, 2012. Her second monograph, Gardening At Night (Schilt Publishing, 2015,), was released in the spring 2015 in conjunction with solo shows at Robert Mann Gallery, New York, Robert Klein Gallery, Boston and Paul Kopeikin Gallery, Los Angeles. The book received critical acclaim with features and reviews in Vogue, The Telegraph, the International Wall Street Journal, The International New York Times, and Aesthetica among others. The International Wall Street Journal said of the series, “Though the subjects and setting are familiar to us, we cannot help but feel that Cig Harvey has led us through the looking glass to a world of wonder. In the way that twilight is not quite day and not quite night, the photographs of Gardening at Night are stories not yet fully developed, while still capturing the unexpected, yet oddly harmonious moments that surround us daily.”
Cig’s devotion to visual storytelling has lead to innovative international campaigns and features with, New York Magazine, Harpers Bazaar, Kate Spade, and Bloomingdales. Cig teaches workshops and regularly speaks on her work and process at institutions around the world.
