Reality Check — On view November 15 - 27, 2017

Reality Check explores notions of perceived and shared reality through the lenses of artists who challenge preconceived perceptions of truth. In any given community, reality is established through a process of comparison and approval of individual opinions. Lack of validation from a community often leads people to abandon their unfavorable views and conform to the majority opinion. Inspired by contemporary socio-political phenomena both in the US and abroad, these artists dare to question what happens if one refuses to accept societal consensus and seek alternative viewpoints by safeguarding one’s own realities.

Participating artists include Layo Bright, Yun Han Chang, Yongjae Kim, Rebecca Ou, Wong Kit Yi, and Hyangro Yoon.

The show is curated by Sotheby’s Institute of Art graduate students Natalie Ng and Hyun Lee.

Opening Reception: November 15, 2017 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Artist talk at 7pm
