Reception: Friday, April 3, 1-3 p.m., on the third floor of the UAA/APU Consortium Library This opening is a First Friday event! Come stop by on your lunch break or between classes to view the exhibit and get an early start to your First Friday celebration.

About the exhibit: The 2015 Spring Senior Seminar class is collaborating with the UAA/APU Books of the Year program for "[insert] REALITY," an exhibition of art designed with the intention to be the catalyst for discussion of larger social and political issues revolving around propaganda. We hope everyone can stop by to see the work of these artists and to discuss these important current issues.

"Insert" means to place, put, load, lodge or install something into another thing. "Reality" as we know it means real life, actuality or the state or quality of [something] having existence or substance. In the case of propaganda and society obtaining information from social media, our definitions for both insert and reality must be challenged. When issues are broadcasted on both a digital and global stage, how can we be certain what is truly real anymore? In what should we insert our trust? In addition to this, we must question what is being inserted here: is it truth that is being placed in us? Are we the inserters of information or the receivers? Who is doing what and what does it all mean for us as a society?
