By Gail Pearce,Cahal McLaughlin

elevated experimentation by way of filmmakers equivalent to Michael Moore and Morgan Spurlock signifies that the partitions among paintings and documentary are collapsing, producing leading edge principles and attracting a completely new audience. Truth or Dare is the leading edge manufactured from a Whitechapel Gallery convention, bringing jointly well known artists, filmmakers, writers and curators. Pearce and McLaughlin's publication finds the debates that flared that day surrounding the binary of artwork and documentary and the tensions of freedom and accountability. The ethics of this new wave of documentary also are wondered, because the authenticity of documentary turns out to conflict with the experimentation and mind's eye of art.  As the excellence among diversified paintings types turns into an increasing number of blurred, fact or Dare explores the shift from separate entities of documentary movie and modern paintings to the obscuring of barriers. The dialogue extends to new technological advancements that permit crossover and possibilities for collaboration. All of those concerns are explored in written chapters and edited transcripts of dialog from the convention, illustrated with stills of relocating snapshot paintings and observed by means of a DVD of the artists’ experimentation. This is a distinct and well timed choice of mirrored image and research by way of documentary makers and artists relating the place they place their paintings types on the subject of one another, and the form of filmmaking to come back. The cross-disciplinary reviews and combined media layout of fact or Dare engages the reader, in order that they too develop into a part of the continuing debate.
