Beyond Truth explores figurative scenes and portraits in which artists have altered the “truth” through postproduction techniques. Want to be a part of the exhibition? Take a selfie and use the photo-editing tools at your disposal—filters, face-altering apps, or effects—to manipulate your image and create an alternate truth. Post your photo to social media using #CMAbeyondtruth. It may be added to photos on a video screen in the gallery, becoming part of the exhibition.
