Aïshti Foundation, "Dark Light : Realism in the Age of Post-Truths"

Opening October 23, 2022

The exhibition « Dark Light: Realism in the Age of Post-Truths » assembles the work of over one hundred artists and more than two hundred pieces from the Tony and Elham Salamé Collection. Taking its title from a 2017 painting by the American artist Nicole Eisenman held in the collection, the exhibition brings together recent acquisitions that question the meanings and functions of figuration in contemporary art.

As the very definitions of truth have dramatically eroded in the past few years, many contemporary artists—especially those working in the United States—have proceeded to analyze, interrogate, and deconstruct the notion of realism, particularly in the field of painting.
