From the SITE Santa Fe catalog:
More Real? Art in the Age of Truthiness presents work by some of today’s most accomplished and promising international artists who are examining our shifting experience of reality. Over the past century, during a period of unprecedented technological change and global social upheaval, once-established beliefs, or “truths,” have been cast into doubt, changing and shaping our understanding and experience of reality. Through diverse media and in unexpected ways, this exhibition explores the impact and role of deception, play, memory, power, simulation, and new technologies on art and everyday life.
The exhibition proposes that we now live in an “Age of Truthiness,” a time when our understanding of the truth is no longer bound to anything tangible, provable, or factual.
