Jave Yoshimoto’s exhibition "A Modicum of Truth" takes on the ephemerality of news and information and how the emotions we bring to each tragedy in the news cycle are swept away by the wave of information that floods the media. Yoshimoto addresses this social amnesia through art with the work acting as a social memory for tragic events so quickly forgotten in our information age. This practice ultimately represents the belief that art should be accessible to its viewers through humanist tales of struggle and survival as played out in the prevalent social amnesia of the information age. The exhibition opens on Thu. Jan. 31 from 6-9pm.
