The Sheila C. Johnson Design Center presents:
an exhibition exploring how contemporary artists use narrative as a way to understand the social and political events of our time.
Curated by independent curators Claire Gilman and Margaret Sundell, The Storyteller features video, still photography, drawing, mixed media and installation works that engage the documentary capacity of art to bear witness to the rapid, sometimes violent, transformations of our time.
Featured artists include Cao Fei, Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller with filmmaker Mike Figgis, Bucksbaum Award winner Omer Fast, Mounir Fatmi, Ryan Gander, Lamia Joreige, Joachim Koester, Emanuel Licha, Missing Books (Maria Barnas, Maxine Kopsa and Germaine Kruip), Steve Mumford, Adrian Paci, Michael Rakowitz, Lisa Roberts, and Hito Steyerl.
