John Nixon’s practice continues an artistic and theoretical investigation into radical modernism. For him the historic avant-garde is an on-going project that represents a need for experiment while adding to the history of this experiment. Nixon pursues the material character of art through a series of explorations that involve the continuation of monochrome painting and its support. This major exhibition was part of ACCA’s ongoing commissioning program.
