Monsen Photography Lecture: Abelardo Morell

The Henry is delighted to welcome Abelardo Morell as this year’s Monsen Photography Lecture speaker. This annual lecture brings key makers and thinkers in photographic practice to the Henry. Named after Dr. Elaine Monsen, the series is designed to further knowledge about and appreciation for the art of photography.

Abelardo Morell was born in Havana, Cuba in 1948, and immigrated to the United States with his parents in 1962. For over three decades Morell has explored what is photographic about photography in works that confound and delight.

Morell received degrees from Bowdoin College and Yale University School of Art. He received a Guggenheim fellowship in 1994, an Infinity Award in Art from International Center of Photography in 2011, and a Lucie Award for achievement in fine art in 2017. Morell’s work has been collected and shown by museums worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago, and The Victoria & Albert Museum, London. He has published numerous monographs, most recently Flowers for Lisa (Abrams, 2018).
