April 20 - June 08, 2007
Multidisciplinary artist Manuel Acevedo (New York, NY) uses large-scale camera obscuras made from rooms in community centers, churches, and homes to bring the outside world in, altering how we normally perceive the world.
Through his work, Acevedo uses both interior and exterior urban landscapes to create dialogues about myth, identity, and cultural understandings. Acevedo's narrative imagery encourages a closer look at our basic humanity, temporarily stripping away class, gender, creed, and culture.
