On View: Based on a True Story at the Contemporary Arts Center

Posted February 18, 2015 in

"There’s an Italian saying that goes se non è vero, è ben trovato. Meaning, roughly: if it’s not true, it’s a good story. This same appreciation for story truth currently fills the second floor of the CAC. Based on a True Story, a pair of dialoguing exhibitions from Duke Riley and Frohawk Two Feathers, riffs on the real in a poetic—if disconcertingly so—way. Both artists reinvent history from the perspective of an outsider, but keep things sufficiently grounded so that you’re left questioning your own assumptions and understanding."
