Carl Chiarenza at VMFA

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts proudly announces the upcoming exhibition of works by photographer Carl Chiarenza.

May 17 – November 12, 2019

VMFA Photography Gallery

200 N. Boulevard

Richmond, VA 23220

Since the late 1960s, Chiarenza has been a leading figure in a movement that seeks to expand the conceptual boundaries of photography. Chiarenza’s photographs have been included in more than 80 solo and 250 group exhibitions since 1957. His black and white photographs, which often contain elements of collage, have continued to challenge notions of landscape, abstraction, visitor perspective, and the very medium of photography itself.

This free exhibition is curated by Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Executive Director and CEO Alex Nyerges.

“The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is incredibly grateful to Carl Chiarenza for his generous gift of works to the museum,” says Nyerges. “I am honored to curate the first Chiarenza exhibition at VMFA, and hope that these twenty-two phenomenal works will offer museum members and visitors an opportunity for a deeper understanding and fresh perspective of the limitless world of photography.”

Carl Chiarenza and Roger Bruce share a deep interest in the history and aesthetics of photography. Carl is a scholar, educator, and an established artist of major reputation.  And it was only five years ago that Roger began to make photographs in earnest.  Roger will tell you that he is a student and admirer of Carl’s work: “It is so pure. He’s an artist who makes images using photography’s most elemental assets.” And for Roger, after 45 years working in organizations that care for or interpret photographs, he was keen to be a “born again” image maker – but this time using the surprisingly precise yet fluid tools of digital production.  Here in Interior/Exterior we see clearly contrasting work -- bound together in shared views and mutual respect.
