Do museums and galleries present just the facts, or are hidden statements and perspectives included?

On Thursday, February 2, 6 p.m. in the MIAD Student Union, a panel of artists and designers will come together to discuss their work, MIAD’s Just the Facts exhibition, and the ideas behind it–how museums and galleries tell their stories. They’ll also talk about how this topic of truth and its presentation has become more and more important in our media and political climate.

Jennifer Angus: Artist in Exhibition
Professor in Design Studies, UW–Madison

Sarah Carter
Curator and Director of Research, Chipstone Foundation

Diane Fox: Artist in Exhibition
