View exhibition page The Great Enemy of Truth by Elizabeth Alexander with sound by Todd Bowser

The Great Enemy of Truth is a site-specific installation by Elizabeth Alexander with an integral sound component by Todd Bowser. The artists will transform the Main Gallery through intricate paper installations, suspended sculpture, found objects, costumes, dinner plates and sound for an immersive experience that the artist says: "seems double-edged, a dreamlike scenario that is both familiar and foreign--inspiring frequent shifts in mood."

Anthropogenic climate change has its root causes in over two centuries of greenhouse gases primarily produced by the first and second industrialized nations of the world. Climate change is a narrative of global data largely understood to be a driving force in social and economic changes of 21st century. Trees are the largest living things on earth; forests are often discussed as one aspect of the range of approaches necessary to sequester carbon with the potential to reduce the impacts of climate change.
