Brooke Shaden’s ”Fourth Wall” Exhibition at the Joanne Artman Gallery

Artist’s Reception: Thursday, January 5th, 2017 from 6pm-8pm


In film, when a character acknowledges the audience, there is a break in the fourth wall – the film becomes self-reflective in nature. The viewer becomes aware that the film itself knows it is a work of fiction. When this “wall” was first imagined in a traditional proscenium theatre, the fourth wall was an exercise in the audience’s suspension of disbelief, with the wall being merely an illusion through which the audience could look upon the play. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present Brooke Shaden’s Room series, a new body of work, which plays upon these ideas of perception and illusion by both acknowledging the viewer as well as the ideas of illusion and perception inherent in the photographic medium.
