Chuck Close “Nudes 1967 – 2014” exhibition at Pace gallery, New York

While renowned worldwide for more than five decades of portraiture, Chuck Close has in the same course of time investigated, experimented and explored another subject with equal virtuosity: the body. Pace’s exhibition will feature Polaroids, daguerreotypes and an acrylic on canvas painting. Color and black & white single panels, diptychs, triptychs, and a five part reclining figure were all made using a 40-by-80 inch Polaroid camera and will be on view alongside the 10-by-21 foot Big Nude, a 1967 painting on loan from a private collection and never before exhibited publicly in New York. New York—Pace Gallery is pleased to present Chuck Close: Nudes 1967-2014 from February 28 through March 29, 2014 at 534 West 25th Street, New York.Photo Tamara Weber
