His work has been exhibited widely at numerous locations including the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; La Box, Bourges; POOL, Johannesburg; PACT Zollverein, Essen; EXGIRLFRIEND, Berlin; University at Buffalo, Buffalo; IDEA Space, Colorado Springs; The Mission, Houston; Galerie Zürcher, Paris; Andrew Rafacz, Chicago; Soccer Club Club, Chicago; Salon Zürcher, New York; The Drake, Toronto; Untitled Art Fair, Miami; Gallery 400, Chicago; Newspace Center for Photography, Portland; Depaul University Art Museum, Chicago and Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago. Bolen lives and works between Chicago and Atlanta, serves as Assistant Professor of Photography at Georgia State University, is a co-founder and co-organizer of the Deep Time Chicago collective, and is represented by Andrew Rafacz Gallery, Chicago.
Nina Barnett uses drawing, printmaking, photography, moving image and installation to examine particular locations in relation to the body, deep time and vertical scale. Her work seeks connections between the geographical, the experienced and the materiality of surfaces, and questions the relationship between the theoretical, surmised and accidental logic. Nina is a South African artist currently living in Johannesburg. She has exhibited her work locally and abroad - notably at Gallery 400, Heaven Gallery and the Chicago Artists Coalition in Chicago, The Soap Factory in Minneapolis, David Krut Gallery and Harvestworks in New York, at the Johannesburg Art Gallery and POOL Gallery in Johannesburg. Notable residencies include the Cite des Arts in Paris; AIR in Bergen, Norway; PROGR in Bern, Switzerland and Summer Forum, Joshua Tree
