Living in Oblivion: an artistic examination of our times
Curated by Meaghan Kent with
Arts Aspire Curatorial Assistant Zohar Wolfson
Living in Oblivion: an artistic examination of our times investigates and identifies the problematics of information and misinformation through the presentation of research-based artwork. Artwork included in the exhibition is created by artists that conduct their own research as well as collaborate with professionals in their respective fields. Additionally, the exhibition conveys information communicated by oral history as told through a variety of unique perspectives. The process encourages visitors to make decisions based on their own findings in seeking truths. It also allows an understanding of how powerful information can be when conveyed visually.
