Altered Reality Digital Art Exhibition on Display at Weisman Museum

December 7, 2016  | 1 min read

The Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art had on display Altered Reality: Contemporary Photography and Digital Imagery from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation until December 4, 2016. Curated by Billie Milam Weisman, director of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, this exhibition filled the Weisman Museum with a stimulating array of large-scale contemporary photography with an emphasis on digital imagery.

Artists today use the camera and the computer together as creative tools to produce provocative and fascinating commentaries on the world around us. Their art is bold—sometimes monumental in size—and often aspires toward the look and scale of movies. In fact, many of the works draw upon the art of cinema and are based on elaborate photo shoots that are as complex as movie sets. Featuring almost 40 large works of art spanning four decades, Altered Reality offered an enticing introduction to the range of thought- provoking work being produced today using cameras in tandem with computers.
