Shifting Perceptions features a selection of photographs from the Museum’s growing Collection and is presented in a trio of sections, each featuring seemingly opposing forces: Natural/Unnatural, Together/Apart, and Inside/Out. Our brains gravitate toward hard distinctions, but life is filled with gradations, complexities, and ambiguities. Some photographs represent a distinct point of view, but many invite contemplation of the in-between, the intersections between two categories, and even the contradictions. Art dwells in questions and wonderings rather than in certainties.
