Art at a Time Like This and Save Art Space are looking for artists of all kinds to submit work to be considered for the public art project, Ministry of Truth: 1984-2020, presenting artworks on billboards around New York City and on artatatimelikethis.com in October 2020.
Curated by Barbara Pollack, Anne Verhallen, Jerome Lamaar, Carmen Hermo (Associate Curator, Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum), Sophia Marisa Lucas (Assistant Curator, Queens Museum), and Larry Ossei Mensah (co-founder of Artnoir), the exhibition will feature artwork that comments on the current state of U.S. politics and that stimulates dialogue about the increasing polarization of our society.
Ministry of Truth: 1984/2020 is a reference to George Orwell’s dystopian novel as artists feel compelled to address the lies, fake news, trolling and propaganda in today’s political rhetoric. 50 years ago, Orwell predicted a Ministry of Truth announcing WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH, horrifyingly relevant in 2020. It is up to artists with their creative imagination to envision a different future for our country.
Dread Scott, Deb Kass, Marilyn Minter, Shirin Neshat and other internationally renowned artists will be designing new work specifically for this project, while the remaining 50% of artists invited to participate will be chosen from this open call.
