press release

Tim Davis’ series My Life in Politics depicts the detritus of our civic involvement as pop culture: buttons, bumper stickers, cardboard cutouts and handmade signs compete with myriad other trappings of capitalism. Davis offers little judgment and no partisanship, presenting the political landscape as divisive, muddled and unresolved. Tim Davis studied photography at Bard College, graduating in 1991. He pursued a career as a poet and editor in New York before returning to photography, receiving an MFA from Yale University in 2001. He has since had solo shows in Brussels, Geneva, Whitecube in London, Milan, and New York, including a recent exhibition at the Bohen Foundation.
