Drawing its name from French film director Jean-Luc Goddard's famous quote, “[T]he cinema is truth 24 frames per second,” Truth: 24 frames per second brings together 24 pioneers of film and video whose work spans six decades. The Dallas Museum of Art’s first major exhibition dedicated to “time-based media” attempts to explore how film is uniquely equipped to draw attention to the marginalized and disenfranchised. Truth is inspired by the DMA’s significant film and video holdings and includes 10 works from the collection, many of which have never been exhibited. The exhibition, on view through Jan. 28 at the DMA, 1717 N. Harwood St., also features the U.S. debut of John Gerrard’s Western Flag (Spindletop, Texas) and the world premiere of a newly restored version of Bruce Conner’s Report, which examines the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Admission is $16 with discounts for seniors, students and military. (It’s free for DMA members and children 11 and younger.)
