>>With the recent scandals in the literary world of writers faking 
>>their memoirs and even identities-to the point where we are not 
>>sure they ever existed- the concept of spinning stories has gone to 
>>a new level. From reality TV shows, talk shows and over-hyped 
>>media, the public is left in a daze of what is true or not. The 
>>artists in this exhibition, from emerging to established, are 
>>tweaking and toying with identities, constructing their own 
>>realities and deconstructing lazily received notions of reality 
>>that we mistake as 'truth. The show emulates the Surrealist 
>>tradition of inventiveness and absurdity as well as its example of 
>>establishing creative relationships between writers and artists. 
>>As a supplement to the exhibition, a complimentary editioned 
>>newspaper, The Seventh Side of the Die, will be published. This 
>>will serve as a medium where artists and writers will collaborate 
>>and carry on a dialogue through text and images. One hundred 
>>Newspapers will have an insert of an original drawing by an artist, 
>>which will be available for sale.
>>The gallery will host performances every Saturday during the length 
>>of the exhibition. The special events include: poetry & fiction 
>>readings, lectures, musical performances, and talks.
