Truth: 24 frames per second
Truth: 24 frames per second brings together 24 pioneers of film and video and over six decades of work focused on pressing contemporary themes, such as race relations, political unrest, sexual identity, and the media, to explore the nature of truth and reality in contemporary life. Truth is the first major exhibition in the Museum’s history dedicated to time-based media and is inspired by the DMA’s film and video holdings. It includes the US debut of John Gerrard’s “Western Flag (Spindletop, Texas)” and the first worldwide showing of a newly restored version of Bruce Conner’s “REPORT,” which examines the assassination of JFK. Other artists and filmmakers featured in Truth include Ant Farm, Dara Birnbaum, Mark Bradford, James Coleman, Phil Collins, Willie Doherty, Omer Fast, Morgan Fisher, Coco Fusco, Tatiana Gaviola, Arthur Jafa, Zoe Leonard and Catherine Gund, Steve McQueen, Shirin Neshat, Pratibha Parmar, Ben Rivers, Rachel Rose, Anri Sala, Chick Strand, Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, Anne Tallentire, and Rosemarie Trockel.
