Exhibition Opening: Dark Ocean

7:00 PM  - 10:00 PM
Friday Nov 10, 2017
Gallery and Art Commons, Art Building

  • Opening Reception, 7–10 pm
  • Public Discussion, 8 pm

Artists Hakan Topal, Perry Bard, and Richard Sullivan discuss the media’s impact on public understanding.

In an Information Age, when knowledge is networked and ubiquitous, how are truths discerned and histories recorded? In an era of ‘alternative facts,’ fast-circulating news, and “fake news,” the ability to understand our world — what constitutes real information to form knowledge and, ultimately, truths — seems daunting. 

Rather than extract truths or call out fabrications, this exhibition presents multiple paradigms for information-making: experience and memory, the interview, the courtroom, the library, news media, broadcast, and social media. Featuring new and recent projects by Perry Bard and Richard Sullivan (New York/Quebec), Ilona Gaynor (Chicago/United Kingdom), Syed Hosain (Minneapolis/Pakistan), Essma Imady (Minneapolis/Syria), Hakan Topal (New York/Turkey).
