Many of the photographic and video works in this exhibition address politically charged issues by capitalizing on the way that the lens can capture and transform notions of authenticity, perception, and reality. The artists operate within a framework that aims to combat the uniformity and ubiquity of photographs while challenging dominant, and often oppressive, cultural representation. Often deploying reality as a tool that builds an illusion, the resulting works could be considered fables that ask viewers to decipher fact and fiction to gain insight, and search for elements of truth within the constructions.

Free and open to the pubic. Gallery hours: Monday - Friday 10am - 6pm. Closed weekends and University holidays. 10 Peachtree Center Avenue, Atlanta, GA 30303. Google map.
