‘Chuck Close: Photographs’ is a comprehensive survey, exploring the ways in which renowned American artist Chuck Close has continuously pushed the boundaries of photography.
Co-organised by and previously shown at the Parrish Museum of Art, New York, the exhibition delves into the full range of Close’s photographic works, presenting 129 images from the late 1960s to the present, and ranging from straightforward black and white portraits to monumentally scaled, composite Polaroids and intimate daguerreotypes.
Chuck Close’s very first solo exhibition was held at the University of Massachusetts in 1967 while he was a member of the Art Department’s teaching faculty, and Close was awarded an honorary Doctorate by the University in 1995.
