In our modern society, imagery is read instantly and without question. Other Ways of Knowing looks at how we see in order to challenge how we acquire knowledge. By questioning our relationship to images, we can look at the ways we’re fed imagery on a daily basis and teach us how to discern for ourselves what that imagery means to us.

Other Ways of Knowing references illusion and misdirection traditionally designed to influence choice and transforms them into a new visual language.

This digital iteration of Other Ways of Knowing features new additions to the series never exhibited before. The screens in the Made in NY Media Center will challenge the viewer to interact with a screen – a daily routine part of our lives – within a new context, one where you’re asked to stay for longer. This exhibition explores the narrative of the series in a new and refreshing way, accomplished by the unique collaboration of the space and the artist.
 

Presented in collaboration with MTArt Agency.

 

About The Artist

Alexandra Lethbridge (b.1987) is a visual artist born in Hong Kong and based in the UK. She graduated from the University of Brighton with a Masters in Photography in 2014. Previous education has included Winchester School of Art, UK and the International Center of Photography, New York.

Found photographs, archival imagery and constructed images of her own making form the basis of Alexandra Lethbridge’s research-based practice. Drawing upon a range of references and source material, she combines scientific theories with fictional constructed images, bringing them together as a form of storytelling.

Her work has been exhibited widely with recent exhibitions including Unseen Festival, Amsterdam, Copenhagen Photo Festival, Denmark and Christie’s Auction House, London.

She was a finalist for the ING Unseen Talent Award and Fotofestiwal Lodz, as well as being selected as a winner for the Format Festival Affinity Award. In 2014, she was shortlisted for the Paris Photo Aperture Foundation First Photo Book Award for her first publication ‘The Meteorite Hunter’, which is also included in the book collection at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
