Coinciding with the exhibition on view at the Tacoma Art Museum, Chuck Close will discuss the work from A Couple of Ways of Doing Something, featuring daguerreotype portraits of many artist-friends who have been the subjects of Chuck Close’s paintings over the years, including Cindy Sherman, Philip Glass, and Andre Serrano. Lyrical praise poems by New York School poet Bob Holman accompany each photograph. For the exhibit, which is accompanied by the Aperture book of the same title, Close uses each daguerreotype as a base from which to create other works, including tapestries and photogravures.”
