“More Real” To Open at SITE Santa Fe. Woody Allen’s Roman Boredom.
More Real: Art in the Age of Truthiness, opens at SITE Santa Fe on July 6th with a weekend of special events. Curated by Elizabeth Armstrong of Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and co-organized by SITE Santa Fe, the show brings 28 international artists to SITE, and is SITE’s antidote this year to an international biennial. As a co-production of two arts organizations, More Real will travel in March 2013 to MIA, opening there on March 3, 2013. I interviewed Liz Armstrong of MIA, and Irene Hofmann of SITE Santa Fe, about what “truthiness” means, and what visitors can expect of a show whose themes deal in a phrase coined by Stephen Colbert, about humans’ tendencies in this our media age to believe in things that may not be true.
