The Anderson (VCUarts), is pleased to present Fake News, the 2020 VCUarts Undergraduate Juried Exhibition, juried by Anna Katz, Curator, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. The exhibition will be on view Nov. 6–21, 2020.
Fake News opens with a physically distanced reception on Friday, Nov. 6, 5:00–8:00PM at the Anderson, VCUarts, Richmond, VA. The reception will be preceded by a public Zoom lecture and Juror Awards ceremony at 3:30PM, during which Katz will discuss her practice as a curator and announce her selections for this year’s Juror Awards.
We welcome the students along with their friends, family, and departmental cohorts to attend the opening event on Friday, Nov. 6, 5:00–8:00PM at the Anderson, VCUarts, Richmond, VA. Visitors must wear appropriate face coverings and observe physical distancing measures. Registration is not required, but building occupancy is limited to 20 people at a time. If the building is at capacity when you arrive, you may be asked to wait outside for a few minutes while we cycle visitors through the exhibition. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to provide a safe viewing environment for all our guests!
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?”
