Transmutation: Photographic Works By Carl Chiarenza

Anderson Gallery University at Buffalo

One Martha Jackson Place Buffalo, NY 14214

November 17, 2012 - February 26, 2013

Transmutation: Photographic Works by Carl Chiarenza will chronicle the evolution of the artist’s photography, exploring how his tightly framed, documentary-style images from the 1960s and 70s present a vocabulary of abstraction that would be further developed in his ongoing series of photographed collages, started in the 1979, constructed from scrap materials. The exhibition will also chart Chiarenza’s move from working primarily with single photographs to the production of sequential images in order to expand on concepts of photographic time and space.


Curated by Buffalo-based artist and photography historian Robert Hirsch. 

A catalog with reproductions of images and text accompanies the exhibition. This catalog is available for $20.00 from the Anderson Gallery, University at Buffalo.
