About

Trust Issues is a show about the inherent fallacy of today’s mass media.

 

Before the Information Age, the media was seen as an objective think tank that nevertheless ignored viewpoints outside its jurisdiction—as well as minority viewpoints within it. The internet, and social media in particular, exposed the factional nature of these institutions, and the media as we'd known it was splintered into thousands of partisan players who were forced to become servile to monetary interests. These biases are more transparent than ever, but the public is often left with more information than they’re prepared to digest. 

 

News hits that a paper owned by a political radical is secretly funded by a toxic industrial giant. Knowing that, can you still feel good about reading your favourite sex column in that newspaper?

 

The artists in Trust Issues upend, confuse or question the integrity of different reproducible medias—from traditional books to website imagery—altering intended meanings through different modes of abstraction. But beware: there are no simple allegories amongst these artworks, only a constant dissection of visual media. Because when everyone’s guilty by association, who can you trust?
