I'm not going to be critical about the exhibition in this post -- I was and still am hoping to accomplish that elsewhere. Be that as it may, of the exhibitions I have been to this summer, Paradox Now, at the Arlington Arts Center, has tickled my frontal lobe and funny bone the most. The show is, in its own right, a paradox, and one that possesses little truth within its violation of common sense. But, with the intellectual gymnastics that this exhibition will provide, the push is not to challenge the truth, but rather to challenge how we perceive the truth.
The exhibition runs through August 22.
