Altered Perceptions

January 2 - January 23, 2024 | Reception: January 4, 2024, 6-8 PM

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce Altered Perceptions, a group exhibition of paintings, photographs, and digital collages that investigate alternative ways of viewing reality. Curated to ignite contemplation and inspire dialogue, the works in this exhibition gather a diverse selection of works by artists that push the boundaries of visual representation. Literary characters and alien entities play out absurdist narratives on the backdrop of richly colored surrealist landscapes. Fragments of prints and images capture urban scenes from various fields of vision; landscapes rupture into hundreds of segmented color shards; ocean waves coalesce into nothingness. As reality deforms, expands, retracts, and shatters, our gaze leaps from piece to piece, image to image, until the fourth wall of material awareness collapses in rubble. By deconstructing and demolishing the world as we know it, each artist in this exhibition invites us to transcend the ordinary and embrace the exceptional. As such, they aim to inspire reflection on the intricate mechanisms that shape our understanding of reality, and how diverse perspectives enrich our collective experience.
