Description

"ALTERNATIVE FACTS"

The upheaval of the 2016 Presidential Election and the Brexit Referendum exposed a fractured society. With social discourse atomized via political antagonism and personalized news feeds, common discourse is in peril. However, the disintegration of the mainstream amplifies voices which were once marginalized. The participants in this discussion explore different versions of history, ways of existing in America today, and possibilities for the future.




PANELISTS:

  • Edgar Arceneaux, artist and filmmaker
  • Christopher and Dominic Leong, founders of Leong Leong, architect and design studio
  • Martine Syms, conceptual entrepreneur


MODERATOR:

  • Juanita Moore, President, and CEO, The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History

CULTURE LAB DETROIT 2017: POST-TRUTH ART


The Oxford English Dictionary chose Post-Truth as its 2016 word of the year, key to a time when “…objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Though central to contemporary politics, the negotiation between objective facts and emotion, personal belief, and individual experience has long been the terrain of artmaking. This year’s Culture Lab Detroit will explore how the subjective and objective interact today, and how art can help us navigate a world of contested reality.
