    Name: Fake News? Some Artistic Responses
    Date: September 8, 2018 - December 12, 2018
    Event Description:
    Over the past two years, the phrase “fake news” has occupied a strong presence in the American lexicon. From information taken out of context and twisted truths to unreliable sources and outright propaganda, inflammatory reports compromise reputable journalism and trust in democracy. Though the phrase “fake news” has been coined only recently and is amplified by easy access to a never-ending newsfeed, similar attacks on the media have existed in the United States for over a century. Artists have always responded to, and reacted against, the barrage of news. This selection by American artists from the permanent collection contemplates the way we consume, perceive, and transmit information in society. These artists recognize the power of the media in shaping public opinion, and encourage viewers to ask questions. Through their work, they offer research, report on current events, and act as fact-checkers of their generations. The full list of artists includes Fred Tomaselli, Matthew Brannon, William James Glackens, Robert Rauchenberg, and Jerome Meadows.
