May 12, 2014
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
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
