RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts will open a new exhibit showcasing photographer Carl Chiarenza on Friday, May 17.
Chiarenza’s photographs have been included in more than 80 solo and 250 group exhibitions since 1957. The free exhibition at VMFA runs through Nov. 12.
Chiarenza has been a leader in a movement that looks to expand the conceptual boundaries of photography. His black and white photographs often contain elements of collage.
Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Executive Director and CEO Alex Nyerges curated the exhibition.
“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.”
