This event has ended.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program announces Concrete Truth: Art and the Documentary, an exhibition that considers vital questions around fact and image-making. The exhibition presents recent lens-based works positioned at the boundary of art and the documentary.

During the last two decades, visual artists have revitalized documentary practices, facilitated by new media technologies and modes of circulation. The artists in Concrete Truth respond to times of crisis by interweaving documentary practices, aesthetics and ethics. Several artists in the exhibition employ documentary formats as a strategy to construct counter-narratives, in works that deal with a range of concerns including the histories of Indigenous peoples, the role of media in political conflict, internet ethics, the abuse of governmental power, and archives and copyright issues.

Artists in the exhibition include Edgardo Aragón, Eric Baudelaire, Paolo Cirio, Maryam Jafri, belit sağ, and Krista Belle Stewart.
