The exhibition features 15 of Chuck Close’s daguerreotypes (including striking enlargements) of leading contemporary artists, paired with Bob Holman’s typeset poems. As individual portraits, each daguerreotype offers an intimate and revealing study of the subject, extending the hyperrealist tradition of portraiture for which Close is renowned. In keeping with the exhibition title, Chuck Close, as curator, has included examples of his other works taken from each daguerreotype in a variety of media, including tapestries and photogravures. The collected work becomes a transfixing group portrait of Close’s influential and highly creative circle of friends and colleagues — from Andres Serrano to Cindy Sherman — as well as an exploration of challenging photographic mediums. A poetry reading by Bob Holman in conjunction with the exhibition will take place Thurs., March 28, at 7 p.m.
