ONLINE—Exhibition Talk: Journey into the Unknown with Guest Curator William Green

Friday, February 12, 2021, 1 p.m., Online

Throughout his career, Carl Chiarenza (American, b. 1935) has demonstrated that photographs can provide much more than just documentary evidence. Rather than create straightforward records of the cast-off materials that appear before his camera, Chiarenza photographically transforms them into new and provocative images suggesting mysterious worlds that viewers are invited to explore. The retrospective exhibition Carl Chiarenza: Journey into the Unknown spans the artist’s entire career, beginning with early photographs he made as a high school student in Rochester and concluding with a large selection of his most recent work in collage.

Join us for an in depth look at the exhibition and Chiarenza’s work with guest curator William Green in this live virtual program.

Free to all. Please consider donating to the museum to support programming like this.

Registration required via Zoom, spaces limited: Register now.

Recording will be available on YouTube one week after the live discussion.
