Professor Emeritus and acclaimed photographer Abelardo Morell spoke to The Washington Post on his life's work and how he revolutionized the ancient camera obscura.
Morell was born in Cuba and came to the United States as a teenager. Over several decades, he has established himself as a top photographer, regularly appearing in exhibitions and museum collections across the country. He is an experimentalist with a keen and often witty sense not only of the history of photography but also of the history of art.
"The mountain vista Clint Baclawski depicts in "Departure" at Abigail Ogilvy Gallery is anything but serene. He inverts the mountain, he bathes it in lurid color. The image scrolls endlessly, staving off stillness."
"GLASSBORO, NJ.- Rowan University Art Gallery is presenting To Whom It May Concern, a new solo exhibition featuring Genevieve Gaignard. The exhibition opened on September 1, with an opening reception and artist talk on September 15, from 5-7 pm.
"Growing up in rural Maine, Charland developed a sense of curiosity for natural phenomena. The experimental nature of his work often yields unexpected results measurable only through photographic processes. Charland earned a BFA in photography from MassArt in 2004, an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, as a Trustees Fellow, in 2010, and was a participant at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2009. In 2016 Charland received the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant in photography."
"Orange Barrel Media (OBM) is pleased to partner with artist Genevieve Gaignard and Atlanta-based independent curator Karen Comer Lowe on a largescale outdoor public art exhibition that explores the issues of race, class, and gender. The multi-media project, titled Look At Them Look At Us, is on view until December 31, 2022, and includes a newly commissioned site-specific permanent art installation by Gaignard."
MassArt's photography facilities, often referred to as the "Cage," occupy the 6th floor of the Kennedy building. Both the Cage and Digital Lab open approximately 1 week after classes begin and close the last day of undergraduate reviews.
