Reading, Pa. – Albright College’s Freedman Gallery will present Mediated Realities, guest curated by Amy Stevens and Angie Duignan, on view from May 24 to June 29. An opening reception will be held Saturday, May 24 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Freedman Gallery.

Presented in the main gallery, this is the second in a series of exhibitions Stevens and Duignan have curated with artists living in Ireland and the United States.

With an interest in work from emerging and established artists from both countries, as well as an interest in politics, social media and the personal and public spheres, Mediated Realities examines this subject matter through a variety of media, including photography, video, sculpture, interactive electronics and installation.

Artists in the exhibition include Carol Anne Connolly, Wendy DesChene and Jeff Schmuki, Angie Duignan, Lori Hepner, Shelagh Honan, Allison Kaufman, Róisín Loughrey, and Sinead McDonald, as well as Albright associate professor Matthew Garrison and assistant professor Wil Lindsay, both in the digital media department.

Running concurrently to Mediated Realities, on view in the foyer’s Digital Gallery, is David Politzer: New Growth.

In a series of three different but related videos, Politzer updates landscape and framing devices through the use of current technology. He takes the audience on a journey through nature as they simultaneously view it through the recorded device and the artificial frames he sets up, and then subsequently tears down, challenging one’s notion of viewing. David Politzer: New Growth runs May 24 to June 29.

The Freedman Gallery in the Center for the Arts is located on 13th and Bern streets in Reading.

Exhibitions and programs in the visual arts at Albright College and The Freedman Gallery are generously supported by The Silverweed Foundation in honor of Doris C. Freedman, the Pennsylvania Council of the Arts and its partner, the Berks Arts Council, and the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.
