The 2015 edition of InsideART focuses on the USFCAM exhibition Enhanced: Photographic Works from the Drapkin Collections with Contemporary Light-Based Media.
Enhanced! presents a selection of vintage and contemporary manipulated photographs that span the history of photography. The images selected for the exhibition have been transformed manually and digitally to enhance them in a variety of ways and to fool the eye of the viewer, and to expand and shift our understanding of photography as a medium. Works selected from The Drapkin Collections anchor the exhibition, with classic images dating from the 1850s to the 1960s, including works by Anna Atkins, Harold Edgerton, Alexander Gardner, Gustave Le Gray, Man Ray, Eadweard Muybridge, Jerry Uelsmann, Weegee and many others. Examples of vernacular photography reflect collector Dr. Robert Drapkin’s broad range of interests. Contemporary selections include works by Yoan Capote, James Casebere, Jerome Favre, Adam Fuss, Debbie Grossman, Kalup Linzy, Christian Marclay, Vik Muniz, Yamini Nayar, Roman Signer, and Peter Tscherkassky. Curated by Noel Smith; organized by USF Contemporary Art Museum.
