Images Were Introduced: An exhibition of film and photography by Michael Nyman

About the Exhibition


Jan 22 – May 17, 2015


Tisch Family Gallery
Images Were Introduced marks the U.S. museum debut of pianist and composer Michael Nyman’s work in the visual arts. He is best known for his collaborations with British independent filmmaker Peter Greenaway, as fellow-artists rather than as filmmaker/soundtrack composer, from The Draughtsman’s Contract of 1983 to Prospero’s Books, their last collaboration from 1991. Nyman subsequently worked with Patrice Leconte, Jane Campion (The Piano), Neil Jordan (The End of the Affair), Michael Winterbottom (Wonderland, The Claim, and A Cock and Bull Story), and Andrew Niccol (Gattaca). He has also written scores for a number of choreographers and has collaborated with several contemporary visual artists.
