Truth Be Told is the fourth installment in the provocative CultureJam MKE indie art series, showcasing outstanding regional artists and challenging dominant notions of the relationship between human beings and their physical and mental environments. In this round 40 artists explore and expose their idea of truth in a multitude of ways, providing a thought provoking experience for viewers.

Highlights of the evening’s show include painter Luke Farley and photographer Marc Tasman who’ve been collaborating on a series they call “Sporting Goods,” fine art pieces made from appropriating images of automatic weaponry from retail sporting goods ads, maniacally scrawled with the rhetoric of traditional sports campaign slogans, “just do it,” and “impossible is nothing.”

Also featured will be mixed media work by Blanche Brown entitled “When You Try To Leave,” depicting the stark reality of what happens when minorities step outside the system’s boundaries and dare to stand up for themselves, and Thomas Hellstrom will exhibit a portion of Xeno:Mke 2013-2023, a time-capsule project done in collaboration with the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center.

Valaria Tatera’s piece “Sins of the Father : A Native American Story” explores the story of her great-grandfather Richard Holmes of the Bad River Tribe, and Christopher McIntyre Perceptions will display his 20×30” archival print of “Fall From Grace” examining how, “In this fallen world, we find ourselves in tempting scenarios that seem stranger than fiction…”

“tl;dr” by Robert Burns consists of a canvas with specific directions for hearing the truth, with those who follow being treated to a special “hour of audio truth” broadcast via shortwave on 5110 kHz.

Musical entertainment for the evening provided by DJ’s, Tiny Bubbles and Sir Tyler Robots.

Artist lineup: Jeff Redmon, Clive Promhows, Anja Notanja, Philip Atilano, Valeria Tatera, Eric Koester, Katie Mullen with Jordan Pintar, Waldek Dynerman, Mikal Floyd-Pruitt, Robert Burns, Diego Heredia, Carol Rode-Curley, Anwar Floyd-Pruitt, Kari Garon, Christopher McIntyre Perceptions, John Kowalczyk, Matt Nadolny, Thaison Nguyen with Amanda Iglinski, Melissa Dorn Richards, Ryan Laessig, Jamie Landolt, William Zuback, Blanche Brown, Michael Kautzer, Jerome Knapp, Sara Bott, Brandon Minga, Therd, Michael Maier, Brian Hibbard, Daniel Fleming, Kerri Root, Sara Risley, Stephanie Barenz, Thomas Hellstrom, William Richard Hurst with Aaron DeLanty, and Marc Tasman with Luke Farley.

Highlights of the show included the Overpass Light Brigade with their piece entitled “PROTEST!” comprised of eight 2ft x 3ft LED letters. Elias Vallejo’s “Freedom tower,” the 15 foot installation is a commentary of the state of surveillance in 2014 America and the public’s impassivity towards it. Pfister AiR finalist, Jeff Redmon’s Scott Walker inspired piece titled “Street Walker,” which makes an obvious statement about Wisconsin Governor’s pay-to-play approach to politics. And RedLine Mentor, Dara Larson’s work called “New Ownership Society – Zombie Home Milwaukee,” where she considers the convoluted pathways to home ownership thought of in the past as a natural conclusion of a strong work ethic and the American Dream.
