It seems as though Man Ray had a fascination with lips!
Follow these lips through the exhibit and the Multiversity Galleries to learn more about Man Ray, African Art and the Modernist Lens.
Man Ray, African Art and the Modernist Lens runs from October 30, 2010 through January 23, 2011 (opening reception Friday, October 29, 7pm)
The exhibit will bring to light photographs of African objects by American artist Man Ray (1890-1976) produced over a period of almost twenty years. In addition to providing fresh insight into Man Ray’s photographic practice, the exhibition
raises questions concerning the representation, reception, and perception of African art as mediated by the camera lens.
