Gallery Project presents Faux Real, a multimedia exhibit in which 26 artists play with the idea that things can be both fake and real simultaneously in terms of concept and materiality. The exhibit opens on Wednesday, July 28 and runs through Sunday, September 5. The opening reception is Friday, July 30 from 6-9. This is the second of Gallery Project’s new cycle of exhibits.
The lines between real and artificial grow increasingly blurred, even to the point that one wonders what, if anything is still “real” in the 21st Century. Every day we create a world of “artificial real” through the construction of false narratives, personal identities, cultural artifice, and virtual worlds. Artists in this show render reality using artificial means, construct false realities and spaces, depict cultural artifice, represent constructed identities and alter egos, and portray the false narratives of our everyday fictions.
Contributors to the exhibit include: Jeffry Abt, Sam Blanchard, Sarah Buckius, Peter Bugg, Lea Bult, Susan Evans, Lynn Galbreath, Matt Gordon, Cynthia Greig, Adrian Hatfield, Nicole Jacquard, Darlene Kaczmarczyk, David Lambert, Lap Le, Jim Nawara, Abigail Anne Newbold, Alison Norlen, Gloria Pritschet, Ashley Allen Short, Clinton Snider, James Stephens, Rob Todd, Jason Urban, Robin Walker, Allen Williams, and Hui Yang. The exhibit is curated by Sarah Buckius, Lea Bult, and Lynn Galbreath.
