Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality

August 15, 2019November 24, 2019

Shaffer Art Building

Skeptical Gaze: How Photomontage Blurs the Lines of Reality explores silver gelatin prints and newsprints which contain the photographic technique of photomontage.  Skeptical Gaze specifically connects contemporary ideas about skepticism towards visual imagery with traditional darkroom techniques as a way to encourage the audience to assess their trust and belief in what visual representations they are consuming.  Comprised of artwork from the Syracuse University Art Collection, Special Collections Research Center, Light Work Collection, and Visual Studies Workshop, this exhibition highlights images that use both fine art photography and mass media produced photography as a vehicle to begin this conversation.
