Reality Check explores notions of perceived and shared reality through the lenses of artists who challenge societal perceptions of truth. In any given community, a shared reality is established through comparisons amongst individuals as they cross-check their perceptions against similar others. Lack of validation from a community often leads people to abandon their unfavored views and conform to the majority opinion. Inspired by contemporary socio-political phenomena, these artists question what happens when one refuses to accept to societal consensus and seek alternative ways of living with one’s own realities.

Participating artists include Layo Bright, Yun Han Chang, Yongjae Kim, Rebecca Ou, Wong Kit Yi, and Hyangro Yoon.

This show is co-curated by Natalie Ng and Hyun Lee.
