Richard Avedon: Relationships (at Galleria d'Arte Moderna in Palermo, Italy)
Richard Avedon: Relationships, envisioned by Chief Curator Rebecca Senf for the Tucson galleries of the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona in 2018, has been expanded and traveled from the Royal Palace in Milan, Italy, to a second venue at the Galleria d'Arte Moderna in Palermo, Italy.
The exhibition, which features both Avedon's portraiture and fashion photography, will present the Center's exhibition of over 100 prints in a series of galleries featuring Avedon's early and late fashion, portraits of performers, artists, and politicians. Each section is introduced by a portrait of Avedon and a quote by the artist bringing a sense of Avedon and his personal outlook into the galleries. The exhibition boasts a new publication--printed in both Italian and in English--to accompany and amplify the installation of prints, and the exhibition includes a special "Vogue" room with a reading area to allow visitors to peruse the exhibition catalogue.
