CHICAGO –– Woman Made Gallery (WMG) is pleased to present “Truth as a Contested Concept,” an exhibition juried by Indira Freitas Johnson. Included are works by 44 artists including 16 artists from Illinois.
“We used to think of 'truth' as being absolute, says curator Johnson. That our choices were binary." But today 'truth' is a contested concept. 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?" Artists in this exhibition are wrestling with the concept of truth looking outward at the world around us and inward toward one’s personal truth.
