Abelardo Morell: Some Recent Pictures at Edwynn Houk Gallery, New York

Through Dec. 20 

Edwynn Houk Gallery
745 Fifth Ave.
New York, NY 10151

Edwynn Houk Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Abelardo Morell (American, b. Havana, 1948). Following his inaugural exhibition in 2013 with Galerie Edwynn Houk in Zurich, this show marks the artist’s first exhibition at Edwynn Houk Gallery in New York. The sixteen large-scale photographs on view will highlight the scope of Morell’s most recent subjects and his continued experiments with perception.

Reveling in the expectations of the photographic process, Morell’s work is charged with discoveries concerning optics, aperture, exposure, and most notably, camera obscura. Since 1991, Morell has been using the camera obscura to effectively turn entire rooms into cameras: the outside world is transposed onto the interior, creating unexpected and often surreal imagery.

Cuban Americans – Our America: The Latino Presence In American Art – Smithsonian Museum

October 25, 2013 – March 2, 2013

 

American Art Museum
8th And F Street NW
Washington DC
 

An exhibition opening next month at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, “Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art,” will highlight a chapter of art history that remains a secret to far too many Americans.

Since joining the Smithsonian in 2010, E. Carmen Ramos, the curator of Latino art at the American Art Museum, has had an ambitious mandate: to strengthen our holdings of Latino art and present that collection in a fresh way. “Our America,” which she curated, will display the results of that quest so far. It will include 92 works (by 72 artists), fully 63 of which have been acquired since 2011.

This exhibit is well represented by Cuban American Artists including Luis Cruz Azaceta, Maria Brito, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Teresita Fernandez, Ana Mendieta, Abelardo Morell, Maria Martinez-Cañas, Arturo Rodriguez, Emilio Sanchez, and Rafael Soriano.

Abelardo Morrell exhibits in NY

October 4 – December 22, 2012

Bonni Benrubi
41 East 57th Street
New York, NY

Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to present Rock Paper Scissors, new work by Abelardo Morell. The exhibition will further expand on Morell’s innovative “Tent-Camera Obscura” process where visual boundaries are pushed with the use of a lightproof tent and periscope that projects a view of the nearby landscape directly onto the ground. The resulting photographs play on the tropes of impressionistic painting as the refracted light is exposed on the grass and sand below. The artist began using this process in 2010 and in recent months, since receiving a grant from National Geographic, has incorporated the Grand Canyon and other rocky terrains from the American West into this body of work.

Abelardo Morell – Outside-in, upside-down — and now in color!

photographs by
Abelardo Morell

plus an audio interview with the
photographer by Jim Casper

Lens Culture Magazine

Abelardo Morell travels the world and converts full-size rooms (some spare, some ornately rococo) into immense camera obscura devices. He brings the outside in through a tiny pin-hole, and by the alchemy of optics, the outside is projected quite naturally upside down superimposing and hugging the surfaces of everything in the room. Then, he photographs the resulting “installation” with his 8 x 10 view camera and enlarges the prints to mural size.
