Artist Reception: First Friday, November 4, 6-8 pm

This thought-provoking exhibition brings together the works of two innovative contemporary photographers for the first time. The works explore the nature of our belief in the supernatural, in both the religious and secular realms, while simultaneously investigating the "objective" nature of the photographic document itself and its ability (or inability) to convince the viewer.
Exhibition co-sponsored by EPACC.

An exploration, through abundant visual materials, of the significant moment in East/West relations marked by the arrival of American Commodore Matthew Perry in Japan in 1853. This exhibit contains approximately 200 Japanese and American graphics weaved together with analytical text to demonstrate how each side depicted the other-and how each depicted the same events differently.
The exhibition was developed by internationally recognized Japan specialists John Dower and Shigeru Miyagawa for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Open Courseware initiative.
