In conjunction with New to the Cantor, an exhibition series that reveals continuities between contemporary and historical art, New to the Cantor: Dashiell Manley is the museum’s first spotlight presentation focused on an emerging artist.
For over a century, artists have employed the newspaper as a source of inspiration, communication, and even as artistic medium. Los Angeles-based artist Dashiell Manley upholds this tradition. This solo exhibition of Manley’s work calls into question the ways in which we experience current events and the value of print journalism in an age increasingly mediated through digital means.
