Abelardo Morell: Projecting Italy

Date: September 4, 2021 - January 2, 2022 at September 11, 2021 - January 2, 2022

Presented By: Fitchburg Art Museum

Boston-based and world-renowned photographer Abelardo Morell has been using the camera obscura since the early 1990s, creating a body of work defined by the contemporary use of a technology that predates the camera. By creating a dark room with no light entering other than through a small pinhole, Morell brings the world outside into the room, projected upside down on the opposite wall. This exhibition highlights Morell’s tent-camera and camera obscura photographs of sites in Italy in honor of the twentieth anniversary of the Center for Italian Culture at Fitchburg State University.
