“Viewfinder” Opens July 14th At The Henry In Seattle

There’s only a partial list of artists included, but the premise of this show holds a lot of promise. Though I would hope that assimilation has more to do with exploration and manipulation, not just funny camera angles:

Since photography’s inception, our world has become an ever more visual culture, where deciphering media images is an increasingly important form of literacy. Viewfinder provocatively suggests that we see photographically and that contemporary artists assimilate the camera’s mechanics as they compose technically and conceptually complex work.

Viewfinder runs from July 14 to December 30 at the Henry Art Gallery [henryart.org via archinect]
