Gallery Talk: “Pictures for Charis”
Photographer Kelli Connell’s Pictures for Charis is loosely based on the relationship between Charis Wilson and husband Edward Weston, a photographer featured in the exhibition Cross Country: The Power of Place in American Art, 1915–1950. Weston’s photographs of Wilson from 1934 to 1945 are some of the best-known portraits in the history of photography.
Kelli Connell and her partner traveled to the diverse southwestern locales where Weston and Wilson worked to take a closer look at the photographer-to-sitter relationship. Join Connell in the galleries as she raises new questions and dialogues about the spousal relationships of photographers and models in the twenty-first century.
