20/20: Double Vision

 
 

20/20: Double Vision comprises video work that challenges what and how we see. 20/20 is what experts define as normal visual acuity, or the clarity and sharpness of vision. While double vision is the simultaneous perception of two overlapping images. The ratio describes visual acuity in relationship to an imagined population. The exhibition is a play on both the literal and metaphorical notion of visual acuity and clarity.

Including works by alumni of what is now the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design, the exhibition highlights the ways in which these emerging and mid-career artists utilize the medium and language of video art to dissect, define, question, and trouble our own perceived visual acuity. Exhibiting artists include: Larry CookMaps GloverAlexis GomezPamela Hadley and Jason Zimmerman.
