On April 11, 2008 VALENTINA MONCADA Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in Rome of the Cuban artist Abelardo Morell. The photographer, already of worldwide renown, will be present in Rome following two previous exhibitions in Italy: in 2000 his first Italian solo exhibition was held in Limonaia of Villa Strozzi in Florence and in 2004 he participated in the group exhibition Arts and Architecture 1900-2000 in Palazzo Ducale in Genova. The exhibition consists of both color and black & white photographsTwo bodies of work will be present, Camera Obscura and Book of Books. Morell is looking at the magical process described by Gianbattista Della Porta during the first half of the sixteenth century, whereby the walls of the room reflect through a lens the view through the window. In Book of Books, the photographer creates the images of books - their volume, their form, surface, reproductions, maps, illustrations... Abelardo Morell (born in Havana, Cuba, 1948) lives and works Boston, where he works as a professor of Massachusetts College of Art. He entered in the art scene in New York in ’70, he stareted to show in all United States.
