Description

Featuring artists from twelve different countries, this exhibition presents a wide range of creative responses to photography as an artistic medium and a communicative tool uniquely suited to modern media landscapes and globalized economies. The artists in this exhibition resist the impulse to "document" or "photograph anew" the world immediately around them. Instead, they employ a wide range of materials--from prints and drawings to photocopies and audio installations--to highlight the ways in which photography shapes our understanding of history as well as current events.
