Word of the Year is an exhibition project hosted by Hunter East Harlem Gallery, inviting emerging curators to activate the a wall at Hunter College's Silberman School of Social Work using Oxford English Dictionary's "word of the year" from the previous year.

By using a word culled from mass media as a prompt, the exhibition space acts as a site for artists and curators to engage in a month-long dialogue about collective consciousness and understanding how semantics can play a crucial role in shaping public opinion.

Word of the Year 2016: "POST-TRUTH"
Post-Truth: an adjective defined as relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.
