Seeing Voices focuses on the relationship between the artist, the work of art and the audience and how the artist's “visual voice” influences the content and subsequent reading of their work. If the artist's voice derives from the sum total of an artist's visual and conceptual strategies, what is the role of an artists' intentions, ethnic background, gender, age, and larger culture in forming that voice? In a post modern era is an artist's voice as likely to be a persona as an authentic voice, and how is this affected by technology, fashion, artistic tradition and the art market?

Work by 32 artists working in a variety of media/formats. Curated by Margery Amdur and Bruce Garrity and presented by the Rutgers/Camden Department of Fine Arts and the Camden County Cultural and Heritage Commission in cooperation with the Rutgers- Camden Center for the Arts. The exhibition is presented at the Stedman Gallery and the Hopkins House Gallery of Contemporary Art.
