Thursday, September 7 – Friday, October 6, 2017
Throughout history, artists have utilized ingenious methods of manipulating materials and processes to manifest various perceptions of reality. And by extension, many artists from the marginalized to the mainstream have challenged the notions of truth and its tenuous relationship with reality. Today, with the loss of faith in institutions to provide a collective comprehension of truth while autocratic leaders espouse misconceptions and misinformation, citizens are left to forge their own understandings. In this exhibition, the participating artists will explore the manipulation of reality and its tricky and fraught relationship with the truth. This exhibition is made up of former Charlotte Street Foundation awardees and is in conjunction with Every Street is Charlotte Street, celebrating their 20th anniversary.
