Truth or Dare - A Reality Show

recurring event

The confusion of reality with its replica, the slippery slide into alternative worlds of alternative facts has become familiar territory more than seven decades after Borges penned this short story. Today, cartography is a relic, replaced with global positioning systems that describe geography through virtual, screen-based information that appears and disappears in a keystroke. If maps have outlived their original use, what truth might they still tell? In contemporary art, maps, along with books and other printed texts, remain potent sources of inspiration for exploring the intersections of knowledge and fantasy, of experience and imagination. Ann Hamilton’s photograph of sections of paperback pages, sliced and stacked, references the loss of various languages worldwide today, while Brian Dettmer repurposes encyclopedias as materials for sculpting intricate sculptures of excavated illustrations and images that may reveal new insights. Nelson Leirner’s physical and political maps of South America are covered in stickers of skulls and smiley faces, respectively, drawing stark contrasts between the real economic and social conditions of the region and the international reputation crafted by politicians. The Arabic letters embellishing Pietro Ruffo’s map of Europe narrate 21st-century socio-political upheaval and protest, while Manuel Antonio Domínguez utilizes maps as canvases on which to paint imagery that reveals hidden histories about the forces and figures that have shaped global conflict.
