The Nasher Museum presented Area 919: Artists in the Triangle a survey of noteworthy work by artists who live in the Triangle. Some of the artists had shown their work internationally in contemporary galleries and museums; others were newer to the art world. All of them have contributed to a vibrant and innovative local artist community. These “artists next door” have both found inspiration at the museum and helped the Nasher forge and grow its presence in Durham’s creative community. Many had taken part in the Nasher Museum’s first decade—through exhibitions, artist talks and events.

The Nasher Museum brought the work of these exciting artists together to share with Duke and the broader public. Area 919 featured work by Jeff Bell, Casey Cook, André Leon Gray, Lincoln Hancock with Yuxtapongo, Harrison Haynes, George Jenne, Stacey L. Kirby, Lavar Munroe, Damian Stamer, Bill Thelen, Hong-An Truong, Stacy Lynn Waddell and Jeff Whetstone.


Area 919: Artists in the Triangle was organized in 2015 by the Nasher Museum’s curatorial department, including Molly Boarati, Assistant Curator; Reneé Cagnina Haynes, Exhibitions and Publications Manager; Chanelle Croxton, Curatorial Assistant; Marshall N. Price, Nancy Hanks Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art; and Trevor Schoonmaker, Chief Curator and Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Curator of Contemporary Art.
