Perspective is a highly deliberated topic. The many connotations of the idea call to mind both subjective emotions and a physical point of view. From the angle at which a subject is photographed to the illusion of dimension on a flat canvas, physical perspectives are an indelible aspect of art, as determined by the artist. Personal viewpoints, alternatively, can be transformed based on one’s experience. Although an artist’s frame of reference may differ from that of the observer, viewers’ perspectives inevitably inform their interpretations. Viewpoint does not define perspective as falling solely into these two distinct categories but rather explores the communication between them.

This exhibition is organized by the 2016 Future Curators.

Beginning in January 2016, this creative team of young aspiring art professionals has been learning what goes on behind the scenes at the Albright-Knox and using the museum's collection and current exhibitions to begin thinking about art from the mindset of a curator. To follow the Future Curators as their organize their own exhibition, check out the Albright-Knox on Instagram (@albrightknox) each Friday for #FutureCuratorsFridays. Learn More about the AK Teens: Future Curators Program
