Today, advances in technology and globalization have left few artistic boundaries uncrossed, including that between reality and the imagination. Digital-imaging software and computer-generated graphics, for example, now allow artists to realize their visions for others to see.

This exhibition features film works of 10 artists and examines the way that they each play with reality and fiction. Featured creators include Japanese artist Shino Yanai, Belgium-born film director Johan Grimonprez, and French mixed-media artist Cryprien Gaillard; till March 24.
