ONLINE—Abelardo Morell: The Universe Next Door

Wednesday, October 7, 2020, 6 p.m., Online

Artist Abelardo Morell's work has quite literally been a reflection of nature, often using glass, lenses, and mirrors to make abstractions of his subject matter. Perhaps best known for his use of a camera obscura, he layers landscapes, surfaces, and architecture to create disorienting photographs that are in fact recordings of what was in front of (or in) the camera. Join us for the start of our Wish You Were Here series as Morell discusses a range of his projects throughout his extensive career, including After Constable, which is featured in our current exhibition Gathering Clouds: Photographs from the Nineteenth Century and Today.

Wish You Were Here is generously sponsored by museum member Dr. Thomas N. Tischer.
