Breaking News: Turning the Lens on Mass Media

Exhibition Website

Dec 20 2016 - Apr 30 2017

Beginning in the 1960s, artists increasingly turned to news media—both printed and televised—as a rich source of inspiration. Breaking News presents work by nineteen such artists who have employed appropriation, juxtaposition, and mimicry, among other means, to create photographs and videos that effectively comment on the role of the news media in determining the meaning of images.
