A Momentary Lapse of Reason
A Momentary Lapse of Reason

November 18 - December 10, 2016

What if you could stick your hand out and touch the thin film of vision before you? And what if it was met with no resistance? (Keep pushing). A film is a screen is a veil. The distance between material presence and trust is an ever-changing negotiation. How do we know to trust?

A Momentary Lapse of Reason included works by Kelsey HarrisonStephen LichtySteve Reinke and Susanne M. Winterling. Exploring the potential for perceptual ruptures created by material infidelities and alternative sensory modes, this exhibition asked: how we know what we are looking at, and how do we know to trust it? The works included in this exhibition considered how we accumulate knowledge––through perceptual, visual, historical or social means––and the capacity that knowledge has to betray us. Taken as a whole, these works invite the viewer to wonder what might lie beyond the boundaries of our perception. Curated by Abbye Churchill.
