Memory, Social Context and the Photographic Image: An Afternoon with Charles Anselmo


Sunday, April 30, 2023 • 2:00PM-3:30PM • Free

The Allegany Arts Council is pleased to announce an artist talk with exhibiting artist Charles Anselmo to explore the connection between memory, social context and the photographic image.

Working exclusively with photographic film, Anselmo has traveled to Cuba more than seventy times. Developing collaborative relationships with Cuban arts organizations, he curates US shows of work by established Cuban photographers and conducts photography field workshops to Havana several times each year. He exhibits internationally, and also speaks regularly at Havana’s Instituto Internacional de Periodismo “José Marti" and the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes "San Alejandro,” Cuba’s oldest art school. He operates Anselmo Image Works, a photographic art printing studio, and continues to photographically explore urban sites that compellingly demonstrate the nascent beauty of forgotten places.
