CENTER is pleased to present Splendor and Misery, a solo exhibition of iconic photographer Joel-Peter Witkin.
Witkin’s work reaches beyond the fine art world to high fashion including Alexander McQueen’s runway and has inspired imagery for Nine Inch Nails videos. Drawing from a rich body of sources—literature, myth, and Renaissance and Baroque painting—he creates elaborate tableaux that explore perverse, erotic, and religious concerns. He considers morality as central to his work.
The image selection for Splendor and Misery: Photographs by Joel-Peter Witkin will include some of his nearly sold-out works as well as lesser known images that will be on view for this special exhibit in his home state of New Mexico.
WHEN: October 5–November 4, 2018; Opening reception October 5, 6:00-8:00pm
HOW: Free and Open to public
GALLERY HOURS: Tues–Sat, 1–5pm
