From the article by Michelle Mackin for SVA Features:

This month, SVA’s biennial alumni exhibition will return to the SVA Chelsea Gallery with “American Truth,” a survey of contemporary America featuring lens-based work by 20 alumni artists. The exhibition is curated by MFA Fine Arts faculty member Jasmine Wahi, co-founder and director of Project for Empty Space, a nonprofit arts organization in Newark, New Jersey.

The artists in “American Truth” explore the meanings that this phrase has for communities across the country—be it their own community or that of another. The work on view, Wahi says, will be “a pastiche of events, lives, landscapes; of heartaches and joys; of grave and grotesque violence; of the utterly mundane and quotidian; of the filthy, visceral and pungent truths that make this country—the land of the imprisoned, the land of the slain, the land of the free—the multilayered place that it is.”
