AGO Creative Minds at Massey Hall

Wednesday April 4, 8 pm
Massey Hall, 178 Victoria St, Toronto

What is the meaning of “truth” in this era of fake news, pseudo-science, conspiracy theories and intellectual polarization? Do artists have a role in discerning the truth? Can they speak with authority? Can their work shift the moral compass for evaluating right and wrong? How can art reveal uncomfortable truths? How can art reveal dishonesty?

Join us on April 4, 2018 for another edition of AGO Creative Minds at Massey Hall as four artists take to the stage to debate the role of art in distinguishing right from wrong, and to consider how notions of truth are related to broader social, economic, political and intellectual forces.

Following a live musical performance, the conversation will begin with a brief exploration of each artist’s engagement with ideas of truth, before opening up to discuss the perils and pitfalls of what it means to speak with authority, with all the risks that it entails.

The event will unfold over 90 minutes, opening with a live performance by JUNO nominated musician Iskwé before moving into the discussion.'
