Organization: EXPO CHICAGO.
This September 17-20, 2015 heralds the inauguration of the annual Project&/EXPO CHICAGO Collaboration Focused on Social Aesthetics.
Project& presents internationally-celebrated artists Hank Willis Thomas, Ryan Alexiev and Jim Ricks of the Cause Collective’s In Search of the Truth (The Truth Booth) on Navy Pier at EXPO CHICAGO.
In Search of the Truth (The Truth Booth) is a mobile interactive video recording booth open to the public that asks participants to look into a camera and finish the statement “The truth is…” The project debuted at Ireland’s Galway Arts Festival in 2011. It has since traveled to locations including South Africa, Afghanistan, Cleveland, Miami, Brooklyn and now to Chicago with Project& and EXPO CHICAGO.
To further animate The Truth Booth in Chicago, Project& is inviting local organizations that engage the breadth of the city’s population and represent the deep civic commitment and ideals of Chicago to finish the phrase “The truth is…” From The Truth Booth recordings, Project& and the Cause Collective will create a cinematographic piece representing Chicago’s diverse opinions, perspectives, confessions and passions.
