What happens when an artist performs a misdirected truth? How might the public respond to layers of deception in public artworks?
This panel digs into processes of showcasing artworks as demonstrations within visual culture and arts research. Positioned between critique and parody, Jen Valender, Scotty So and James Little discuss the use of misdirected unrealism in their art practices. This panel will traverse approaches to virtual performance as artistic resistance: from rewriting history by editing an archive to utilising Zoom for conversational parody and appropriating gallery Instagram feeds. Participants discuss research into psychological and ethical binds, toxic art world dynamics, the politics of censorship, and making artworks that sit between physical and simulated reality.
