Altarations: Built, Blended, Processed presents works by 23 contemporary artists. Most of the artists live and work throughout the United States while a few reside in other countries including Israel, Denmark and Peru. While hardly unified in style and content, the artists’ works in Altarations blend photographic images and processes to produce works that celebrate, contradict and undermine photographic traditions through altered images and references. The title of the exhibition is derived from Mark C. Taylor’s “Altarity,” a 1987 book of philosopher Taylor’s writing that brings together his interpretation and synthesis of several modern philosophers’ interpretations of difference and otherness.
The exhibition will take place in two locations:
