Chris Buck: Magnificent Hurt

Exhibition Dates: January 26 – March 16, 2018

[V]isit the newest exhibition at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, Chris Buck: Magnificent Hurt. Photographer Chris Buck’s humorously twisted portraits of pop-culture icons are on view now through March 16, 2018. Buck is known for making his subjects uneasy and taking them out of their comfort zones to capture a stranger, more vulnerable side than their fans— or detractors — are accustomed to seeing. Buck’s exhibition at FMoPA will also include a handful of photographs from his newest series, “Gentlemen’s Club,” featuring portraits of men who are romantically involved with exotic dancers, and from “Chris Buck’s Chris Bucks,” in which he photographed other men named Chris Buck. The artist will speak about his work in a lecture at the museum on March 2 at 6 p.m. The lecture is free for members while regular museum admission fees apply for not-yet-members.
