When: Jan. 21 March 12, 2011

Where: CSU Art Gallery, 2307 Chester Ave.

About the show: According to curator Mark Slankard, "Whatever the artist's approach, they all confound meaning by disrupting our expectations of life, art and artifice. This exhibition features such implausible images as the archeological remnants of human civilization; one artist repeatedly stars in images of himself in impossibly perilous situations; there are photographs of other reconstituted photographs; and works where an image's meaning shifts when textual information is introduced -- or eliminated."

In Gallery C: Cleveland Photographic Society at 125
125th Anniversary of the Cleveland Photographic Society
Peer juried exhibit of 35 works by current CPS members.
