Abelardo Morell in the Atlantan

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, April 29, 2014
Currently exhibiting at Jackson Fine Art

Through May 3, 2014

Abelardo Morell is known for his play with camera obscura.  His experiments started in his own living room at home in the early 1990's.  His experimenting continued and took him around the world to juxtapose interiors with their opposing views.  This is more than a natural relationship but a wonderful and elegant expanding and compressing of space.  

Morell's work has been collected and shown internationally, including MOMA, the Whitney, and the Metropolitan in New York City; the Art Institute of Chicago; SFMOMA; the Houston Museum of Art; the Boston Museum of Fine Art; and the Vicoria and Albert museum among other notable institutions.  He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, among them a Cintas Grant in 1992, a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1994, a Rapport Prize in 2006, an Alturas Foundation grant in 209, and the Infinity Award in Art from the International Center of photography in 2011.
