Please join us for a Members Preview Party celebrating the opening of the exhibition, Circle of Truth. Meet the curators, LA-based Shane Guffogg and Laura Hipke and exhibiting artists.
Circle of Truth is a wholly unique collaboration of 49 contemporary artists, each sequestered and unknown to one another, working in absolute secrecy. Taking a full nine years from launch to completion, Circle of Truth is a modern, visual take on a common childhood classroom exercise wherein a secret message was whispered from student to student, often referred to as the Rumor Circle, or the Telephone Game.
The Circle of Truth Project was launched in 2009 and completed in 2016. The exhibition makes its debut at NUMU on October 19th and runs through March 10, 2019. It will travel to the Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) in Lancaster, CA in August 2019 and the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art (OCCCA) in Santa Ana, CA in October 2019. Complete exhibition details here.
