MODA Curates

April–June 2014

Curated by Alison Coplan, Heidi Hirschl and Kathleen Langjahr

This exhibition explores how both modern and contemporary artists have experimented with different notions of representation as filtered through psychological, mechanical and virtual lenses. In interchanges between embodied vision and the external world across various media, the grouping of works focuses on relationships between subjectivity, image production and reality. This show examines the role of the artist in reflecting and shaping images of both the self and "society." Through modes of conceptual self-portraiture, montage and digital technology, these artists subjectively construct contemporary consciousness.

MODA Curates is an annual opportunity offered by The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery and the MA in Modern Art: Critical and Curatorial Studies Program for outstanding curatorial proposals related to students' theses.
