Opening Reception
Friday, June 15, 7-9pm

StereoVision looks simultaneously at the past, present and future as it examines how art and technology have shaped our vision and perception. Stereographs, a groundbreaking 19th century antecedent of virtual reality, are joined with contemporary photographs, sculptures, holograms, and video installations. The viewer is immersed in environments that probe and disturb our normative visual, auditory and kinetic perceptive experiences.

The artists represented in StereoVision include Peter Bahouth, Ian Burns, Janet Cardiff, Juan Cespedes, Chuck Close, Rochelle Costi, Leandro Erlich, Zilvinas Kempinas, William Kentridge, Brian Meola, Barbara Probst, James Tunick and Janis Garancs. The stereographs and stereoscopes are on loan from the Drapkin Collection and the contemporary works are borrowed from private collections, museums and galleries. StereoVision is curated by Izabel Galliera, USF Institute for Research in Art.

The USF Institute for Research in Art is recognized by the State of Florida as a major cultural institution and receives funding through the Florida Department of State, the Florida Arts Council and the Division of Cultural Affairs. The Contemporary Art Museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums. StereoVision is made possible by the Members and Corporate Partners of the USF Institute for Research in Art, and is supported in part with the assistance of SolidWorks, Audio Visual Innovations (AVI) and a generous community donor.
