Madeline Djerejian (MFA 1997 Photography and Related Media) is exhibiting work in a two-person show, memento, at Cuchifritos, an artist project space at 120 Essex Street. The artwork by Dejerjian and fellow artist Soledad Arias is a reflection on presence and absence, creating an ambiguous space for introspection. Djerejian’s work, Museum Pictures, presents photographic views of Old Master and 19th-century painted portraits, taken from oblique angles to include reflections from the museum’s own light sources. Memento will be on view from November 1 through December 6. A reception will take place at Cuchifritos on November 1, from 4 to 6pm.
