The Big Reveal: Telling Truth in an Age of Fiction explores how photographers today are revealing truths and addressing the roles of fact and fiction in contemporary society.

Photography today can feel invisible. It saturates the news, social media, advertising, and vernacular uses in everyday life. Yet, photography’s ubiquitousness gives it a quiet power in numbers. It aids in the telling of important truths and lies; reinforcing rhetoric and debunking myths. Photography has the power to tell a story from an individual perspective and to be understood by the masses.

CENTER is teaming up with the CURRENTS New Media Festival’s opening and second weekends and will be hosting a juried projection outside El Museo Cultural next to the festival’s main entrance on the railroad track side.
