Patrick Manning: Our Inviolable Asylum...the Violence of Primitive and Pre-logical Silence

Patrick Craig Manning's photographic, digital, and video work invokes loss to explore the intersection of representation, language, and history and has been exhibited at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Eiteljorg Museum of Indian and Western Art, in galleries across the U.S., and internationally in Guatemala and China. Computer and video-based public art projects exploring language, the individual, chance encounters, and the silences of the public sphere have been commissioned by the cities of San Jose and Indianapolis and were part of the Zer01 biennial.

Manning is an associate professor of photography at the University of New Mexico. Born in Seattle, he received degrees in photography and archaeology from the University of Washington and his M.F.A. from the University of New Mexico before going on to teach at the Herron School of Art in Indianapolis.
