Truth: 24 frames per second

Dallas Museum of Art

22 Oct 2017 - 28 Jan 2018

This is the first major exhibition in the museum’s history dedicated to time-based media. It brings together 24 pioneers of film and video covering more than six decades of work, with a focus on pressing contemporary themes such as race relations, political unrest, sexual identity and the media. The era of post-truth politics poses particular questions for the medium of film, which, since its inception in the late 19th century, has been claimed to surpass all other forms of representation in duplicating reality. The exhibition is designed around three filmic techniques – appropriation, documentary and montage. Artists featured include Arthur Jafa, Steve McQueen, Rachel Rose, Shirin Nashat, and Omer Fast. Find out more about the ‘Truth’ exhibition from the Dallas Museum of Art’s website.
