The Cerritos College Art Gallery is pleased to present "after image: the photographic process(ed)," a group exhibition featuring thirteen local, national, and international contemporary artists working to surface the physicality of the photographic process and, by extension, the embodied nature of image viewership. Through the manipulation of photographic prints (using various non-traditional strategies, such as bleaching, cutting, folding, poking, pouring, scratching, sewing, and soaking), the exhibiting artists work to counteract naïve assumptions regarding the inherent ephemerality of technologically-based representation; erasing the over-determined idealization of the theorized image in favor of the endlessly contextual materiality of the photographic object.
The Cerritos College Art Gallery presents rotating exhibitions highlighting the work of emerging and mid-career artists. A special emphasis is placed on works that confront challenging and pressing issues in contemporary art and culture. In support of exhibitions, the Cerritos College Art Gallery also regularly hosts workshops, lectures, and performances.
