Among the few contemporary photographers working in cliché-verre, Abelardo Morell stands out.  As he writes of his work in this medium, “The images that I’m most happy with are the result of multiple pressings and repeated inking which, to my eye, border on chaos. Making cliché-verre images gives me a welcome opportunity to play with painting and drawing in the most rudimentary way; as a photographer, it’s nice to be able to get my hands dirty.” Morell discusses his work and this artistic medium with Anne Leonard, Manton Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Clark. This event is offered in conjunction with A Change in the Light: The Cliché-Verre in Nineteenth-Century France.

Registration is required by 5 PM on May 5, or when capacity is reached. Registrants will receive an email with a private link to this live virtual program before the event.
