Robert Hite Wins Guggenheim Fellowship 2014

Congratulations to Robert Hite, recipient of a 2014 John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship for his series “Imagined Histories.”

For this series Hite fabricates structures in the studio and re-situates them in outdoor surroundings, generating black and white photographs that hauntingly juxtapose the artificial and the natural, while playing with architectural scale. Recent solo shows have featured the photographs with the sculptures, magnifying the striking effects of dislocation and confounding of scale central to the images. “Imagined Histories” was featured at The Nassau County Museum (2011).
