“Truthiness”, coined by Stephen Colbert, is the belief or assertion that a particular statement is true based on the intuition or perceptions of some individual or individuals, without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or facts. Truthiness can range from ignorant assertions of falsehoods to deliberate duplicity or propaganda intended to sway opinions. The concept of truthiness has emerged as a major subject of discussion surrounding U.S. politics during the 2000s because of the perception among some observers of a rise in propaganda and a growing hostility toward factual reporting and fact-based discussion.

The chaos and controversy surrounding both cultural and political perceptions has prompted the Lois Lambert Gallery to invite 24 artists to address these concerns in their own particular way.
