On January 21 Emily Bills, professor of urban studies, joined Dixie Guerrero and Edward Cella in a conversation about photographer Pedro E. Guerrero’s extraordinary legacy documenting the personal lives and practices of celebrated artists and architects. The conversation opened the exhibition Guerrero: Calder & Nevelson, In Their Studios, a collection of captivating photographs from the estate of Pedro E. Guerrero. Best known for his images of the life and work of American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, this exhibition highlights for the first-time Guerrero’s intimate documentation of renowned sculptors Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson in their homes and studios. The exhibition includes sculptures and collages by Calder and Nevelson that provide a direct context for the viewer. This presentation also serves to celebrate the centennial of Guerrero’s birth in 1917.
