Artwork in “Altarations: Built, Blended, Processed”

Florida State University Department of Art Professor John Mann is showing work in Altarations: Built, Blended, Processed at the University Galleries of Florida Atlantic University from November 21, 2014 to February 28, 2015. This photo-based exhibition presents works by more than 20 contemporary artists.  While hardly unified in style and content, the artists’ works in Altarations blend photographic images and processes to produce works that celebrate, contradict and undermine photographic traditions through altered images and references. The title of the exhibition is derived from Mark C. Taylor’s Altarity, a 1987 book of philosophical writing that brings together his interpretation and synthesis of several modern philosophers’ interpretations of difference and otherness.
