Curator Sarah Pollman: “Photographic meaning evolves and mutates when pictures travel across time between people and places. Transmutations traces what happens in these exchanges, using the centrality of human touch to foreground materiality and explore images as more than just indexical windows into the world. Photographs transcend their referential roles as six artists construct and deconstruct them, manipulate and adorn them. Collectively highlighting performative gestures, the works in Transmutations consider the photograph as a collaboration between maker, viewer, and receiver.”
Exhibiting artists include Caleb Cole, Dell M. Hamilton, S. Billie Mandle, Courtney Nimura/Trevor Powers, and Larry C. Volk.
The exhibition opened May 28 and runs though August 11 in the lower-level gallery at University Hall, 1815 Mass Ave, Porter Square, Cambridge.
University Hall is steps away from the Red Line Porter Square T-Stop, as well as stops for the 77, 96, 83, and 87 bus routes. Paid parking is available on the street and in the lot behind University Hall, accessed from Roseland St.
