Esemplasticism: The Truth is a Compromise is an exhibition dealing with different facets of perception in the fallout of the information/technology revolution; each of the works lays bare the tricks and techniques used by our brains to negotiate the ‘objective’ world against a historical backdrop of what Op Art curator William C. Seitz, writing in the 60s, referred to as ‘perceptualism’.
