Internationally acclaimed artist debuts Terre Haute photographs

TERRE HAUTE — Large format color photographs from internationally acclaimed artist Andrew Moore’s Terre Haute, Detroit, Russia, and Cuba series will be showcased in the exhibition “Andrew Moore: Making History.”

The photographs will be on display Monday through March 23 in Indiana State University’s Art Gallery in the Landini Center for Performing and Fine Arts at 300 N. Seventh St.

Moore will discuss his work in the center’s recital hall at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. A reception will follow. The exhibition, talk, and reception are free and open to the community. A complimentary exhibition catalog is available to gallery visitors.

Moore is best known for his thoughtful and vibrant images of Cuba, Russia, Times Square and, most recently, Detroit. Last spring university curator Barbara Räcker invited Moore to Terre Haute where he photographed rarely seen interiors on the campuses of Indiana State and St. Mary-of-the-Woods College, the Columbian Home Products factory, the Vigo County Courthouse, and several other historic buildings. This exhibition will debut these photographs.

Rounding out the exhibition are 15 photographs from Moore’s other recent series. The Detroit photographs feature once opulent, but long abandoned, buildings such as Michigan Central Station and Lee Plaza Hotel. Moore’s Cuba photographs, primarily taken in Havana and Matanzas, reveal a city seemingly suspended in time. In one photograph, an early 1950s red Chevy passes a crumbling Gothic facade. His photographs of buildings in St. Petersburg, Siberia, and other regions of Russia show a proud country struggling with change.

An image of a newly renovated opera house in Irkutsk strikingly contrasts with the dilapidated Locomotive Workers’ Theater in Ulan Ude.

Moore was both producer and cinematographer for “How to Draw a Bunny,” a documentary feature on the artist Ray Johnson. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won a Special Jury Prize, and later was named one of the best films of 2002 by New York Magazine. The film will be featured in the University Art Gallery’s media room during the exhibition.

Moore’s photographs are contained in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Yale University Art Gallery, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the George Eastman House and the Library of Congress. He has been the recipient of grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, New York State Council on the Arts, and several private foundations.

He has staged nine solos shows in New York City, as well as recent exhibitions in Minneapolis, Moscow, Paris, San Francisco, St. Petersburg, Nebraska, and Amsterdam.
