Inverted Reality: An Experimental Ethnography explores the relationship between art and anthropology through ethnography while focusing on film, performance, photography, and sound. Each work examines and critiques the notion of self reflexivity inherent in the practice of ethnography. It draws attention to the role the artist plays in their work while also exploring what it means for an anthropologist to represent a culture or social group – questioning the subjective and objective aspect of fieldwork. The artists presented in this exhibit explored this concept of self reflection during the practice of their work, but the works themselves also ask the viewer to question the role of self in art and anthropology.
