Ministry of Truth: 20 Billboards Across NYC Address Politics

By whitewall

October 15, 2020

This week, the public exhibition “Ministry of Truth: 1984/2020” opened across five boroughs of New York City. It presents the work of 20 artists on 20 billboards in response to currently U.S. politics.

The public project comes out of the recent online initiative, “Art at a Time Like This,” and is curated by Barbara Pollack, Anne Verhallen, Jerome LaMaar, Carmen Hermo, Sophia Marisa Lucas, and Larry Ossei-Mensah, in collaboration with Save Art Space.

“Ministry of Truth: 1984/2020” refers to George Orwell’s dystopian novel, in which “WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH,” is announced by a Ministry of Truth—a sentiment that feels surprisingly pertinent in the lead up to the presidential election.

Participating artists include Shirin Neshat, Dread Scott, Abigail de Ville, Marilyn Minter, Dan Perjovschi, Aaron Gilbert, Deborah Kass, Sue Coe, Guerilla Girls Broad Band, Lola Flash, Angela Portillo, Akinbo Akinnouye, Rachel Hsu, Ruj Greigam, Mel Chin, Holly Martz, Terry Berkowitz, V.L. Cox, Helina Metaferia, and Ileana Hernandez.
