Fake News

Organized around Katz’s timely provocation, Fake News is a far-reaching and multifaceted exploration of states, modes and the consequences of mis- and disinformation. Featuring 37 artists representing 9 VCUarts departments and an incredible plurality of media and practices, Fake News offers both playful and poignant answers to its founding question: “In the so-called “post-truth world” that we now occupy… what is, or ought to be, art’s relationship to reality, illusion, and fact?”
