MCA #CloseToChuck

Went to the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia for a social media evening for their upcoming “Chuck Close – Prints, Process, Collaboration” exhibit. The event started at the outside foyer of the MCA where we were treated to champagne and liquid nitrogen gelato by funitro.com.au. There we were welcomed to the event by The MCA director, Liz Ann and then lead upstairs to level 3 for a tour of the Chuck Close exhibition by the exhibition curator, Terri Sultan. Museum and art pieces fascinate me, but it’s so much more enjoyable when you have the curator explaining the story/process behind each piece. The choice of materials chuck used is quite fascinating, I’ve included a few of the photos of some of the exhibition pieces which I particularly like. There’s a self portrait of himself which he printed in tapestry and I loved the depth and contrast it brings out, almost as if the picture is sticking out of the tapestry. There’s also another piece where there is an elongated image on the ground and the image displays correctly on a mirror (refer to the images below to see what I mean)..

Overall, it was a great event and I like to thank the MCA for the opportunity to preview the Chuck Close exhibition before the public opening day.
