Exhibition Description: Truth as a Contested Concept is open to all artists whose work addresses the theme.

We used to think of “truth” as being absolute. That our choices were binary. But today “truth” is a contested concept. [how so?] One of the many questions that come up is whether truth is subject to human interpretation. Does truth change according to circumstances so that what is true for a particular time is not true at a different time?  Does this mean that truth for one person may not necessarily be the same for everyone? If this is the case then can anyone really know “the truth”? The juror is interested in creating a dialog around what we consider truth to be. Do we feel that truth is important? Does the constant wearing away of our belief in truth jeopardize our well being?

Juror: Indira Freitas Johnson

Award winning artist and educator, Indira Freitas Johnson’s passion to make art part of everyday life and to involve local communities in the art process is evident in all her work.  Influenced by an artist father and a mother who was a social activist, Johnson believes strongly that art and activism are a powerful combination for social change. Johnson’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is represented in numerous private and public collections including the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago Transit Authority, Rhode Island School of Design Museum, Providence, RI.
