The exhibit, featuring works by such photographers as William Eggleston, Huger Foote, David Leonard and Vesna Pavlović, runs through November 23rd.

Simen Johan: Until the Kingdom Comes Opens in Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery
February 20th, 2011

Nashville, TN – The Frist Center’s Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery will feature Simen Johan: Until the Kingdom Comes, comprising nine large-scale digital photographs and three sculptures. The exhibition opens February 20th, 2011, and will remain on view through May 29th, 2011.

Often showing wild animals in natural settings, Johan’s photographs may seem like National Geographic idylls writ gloriously large. Yet while appearing to be straightforward documents of nature, the works have an underlying allegorical content.
