Lauded by the Minneapolis Star Tribune as "a genuinely brilliant show," More Real? Art in the Age of Truthiness compiles works by 28 international artists to explore the shaky relationship between fact and fiction in the 21st century. The show includes Vik Muniz's Verso, reproductions of the stickered, scratched reverse sides of iconic paintings, and Ai Weiwei's Colored Vases, smashed, obliterated Neolithic and Han-dynasty urns that may or may not be authentic. The show runs at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts’ Target Gallery through Sunday, June 9.

Minneapolis Institute of Arts

When the Minneapolis Institute of Arts first opened its doors in 1915, it was the product of several decades of arts advocacy. A group of 25 citizens formed the Minneapolis Society of Fine Arts in 1883 with the goal of giving their community access to creative arts. More than a century later, this commitment to the community has taken the permanent collections from 800 works to close to 80,000 objects and has made the museum Minnesota's largest art educator.

The collections, divided into seven curatorial areas, encompass a period of 5,000 years and hail from every corner of the world. The Asian Art collection represents 17 different Asian cultures, and Arts of Africa and the Americas holds more than 3,000 pieces of sculpture, basketry, painting, and beadwork. Temporary exhibitions bring collections of artwork from other institutions. The museum's interactive learning stations supplement understanding of topics such as modernism or 17th-century European painting with animation, video, and audio recordings.
