The Tabla Rasa Gallery at 224 48th St. in Sunset Park is opening a new exhibition, “Fake News Art and Artifice,” on Saturday, Jan. 6. 

According to a Tabla Rasa news release, “The term `fake news’ has entered our everyday lexicon referring to a simplistic dismissal of factual information, which thereby attempts to turn verifiable truths to fiction. Conversely, in artistic expressions, often just the opposite occurs. Truth is revealed through fiction.”

“Most works included in this exhibition reference, incorporate, or mimic publications which utilize the printed word, often in the form of a newspaper, informational documents.  Also included are works that utilize video, as another source of informational content,” according to the gallery.

The artists then use these stories, publications or videos to create their own art. The artworks include collages, reproductions of printed text, video projections and more.

“Fake News: Art and Artifice” will be open to the public from Jan. 6 until March 4. The public is invited to an opening reception on Saturday, Jan. 6 from 2:40 until 4:30 p.m. For more information on the gallery, call (718) 833-9100.
