Reimagining Reality:
Exploring Experience and Identity in the Age of Innovation

Exhibition runs Jan. 28 to March 15, 2019

The Gallery of the Common Experience presents its Spring 2019 exhibition, Reimagining Reality: Exploring Experience and Identity in the Age of Innovation. This show focuses on the ways in which visual media interact with the ever-changing landscape of culture, politics, and life. We seek to expand our understanding of innovation as more than a technological buzzword but rather a challenge to create a newer, better experience beyond our present reality. Approaching themes of the social and physical constructs of race, sexuality, gender and labor, this show will function as a space to recreate and re-interpret the world around us.

What to Expect
An exhibition highlighting student artists interpretation on the way we can change our perception of fixed realities.
