Opening Reception: Chuck Close – A Couple of Ways of Doing Something

Chuck Close – A Couple of Ways of Doing Something
Exhibition Dates:  January 31, 2013 – March 31, 2013

© Chuck Close

 

A Couple of Ways of Doing Something features fifteen of Chuck Close’s delicately intimate daguerreotypes (including striking enlargements) of leading contemporary artists, paired with Bob Holman’s witty and beautifully typeset poems. As individual portraits, each daguerreotype offers an intimate and immensely revealing study of the subject, extending the hyperrealist tradition of portraiture for which Close is renowned.

In keeping with the exhibition title, Chuck Close, as curator, has included examples of his other works taken from each daguerreotype in a variety of media, including tapestries and photogravures. The collected work becomes a transfixing group portrait of Close’s influential and highly creative circle of friends and colleagues—from Andres Serrano to Cindy Sherman—as well as an exploration of challenging photographic mediums.

Exhibition organized by Aperture Foundation, New York.
