The Truthiness Show, Part 3: Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak On Art and More Real Life May 11

Trust the Audience. MIA Viewers Respond April 17

'More Real' Opens in Minneapolis March 14

Seeing is Disbelieving

Over the past century, a period of unprecedented technological change and global social upheaval, once agreed-upon beliefs, or “truths,” have been cast into doubt, changing and shaping our understanding and experience of reality. More Real? Art in the Age of Truthiness features work by 28 of today's most accomplished and promising international artists, including Ai Weiwei, Vik Muniz and Thomas Demand, who explore our shifting experience of reality.
