An Art That Nature Makes: The Work of Photographer Rosamond Purcell

“Winning dive into hidden, off-kilter beauty.” (Los Angeles Times)

“Purcell has captured the history of objects . . . in Romantic decline: books scourged by worms, petrified food-stuffs, biological specimens gone wrong, the inexorable entropic winding down of everything.” (Filmmaker Errol Morris) Rosamond Purcell has been called a poet of the inanimate and, wittily, our “greatest living 17th-century photographer.” (New York Times) We follow the hunt as she ventures into junkyards and the dusty corners of museum collections in search of objects to transform with her camera into images of stunning lyricism and sometimes disturbing resonances.

Tickets: $8 (members), $13 (nonmembers)
