The SCAD exhibitions department presents "Room In My Head: Staging Psychological Spaces," a group exhibition featuring contemporary photographers whose constructed or manipulated interiors present varied states of mind.

These artists charge their environments with a heightened sense of drama and suspense emphasizing particular vantage points, lighting, imaginative architecture, and symbolic and often unsettling references to the human psyche.

These staged spaces serve as metaphors for our emotions, fears and imaginings, and blur boundaries between the real, the unreal and the surreal.

Artists include:

  • Janine Antoni
  • James Casebere
  • Gregory Crewdson
  • Sarah Hobbs
  • Isaac Julien
  • Laura Letinsky
  • Zwelethu Mthethwa
  • Lori Nix
  • Laurie Simmons
  • Mickalene Thomas
  • Carrie Mae Weems

Gallery hours:

  • 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday

  • Closed Sunday

Held in conjunction with the SCAD Fourth Biennial Art History Symposium "The Madness of Photography" and the 2012 deFINE ART program
