David Hilliard uses his unique, multi-paneled technique to produce expansive photographs, both figuratively and literally. His sweeping images depict subtle moments of love, family, adolescence, friendship and the nuances of masculinity, with a quiet yet powerful resonance. The multiple panels act as short films; a single work captures the passage of time before our very eyes. Although Hilliard's photography illustrates his own personal tensions, fears and desires – embroiled in his upbringing and sexuality – they remain universally evocative. Hilliard received his BFA from Massachusetts College of Art & Design (MA) before going on to complete his MFA at Yale University (CT). He has had solo exhibitions in Paris, Atlanta, Boston, Los Angeles, New York, Portland, Frankfurt, Seattle, New Orleans, and Barcelona, among others. Hilliard is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, as well as a Fulbright Grant, and often participates in residencies and lectures at universities such as Dartmouth, Harvard, and Yale. His work is included in many international collections, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (CA), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), the Whitney Museum of American Art (NY), Microsoft Art Collection (MA), Portland Art Museum (OR), the DeCordova Museum (MA), the University of Salamanca (Spain), and the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PA), among others. He lives and works in Boston, MA.
