The Last Newspaper
Date: Wednesday, October 6th 2010Sunday, January 9th 2011
Venue: New Museum, 235 Bowery

In an era of ubiquitous, instant news, a survey of how artists use and respond to these stories and headlines that couldn’t be more relevant. The Last Newspaper promises to exhibit works on the subject from 1967 to the present, including artists such as Luciano Fabro, Mike Kelley, and Nate Lowman. Especially exciting is the promised weekly newspaper published by Latitudes (Max Andrews and Mariana Canepa Luna). They will report on events and discussions that take place in the gallery throughout the run of the show. It may be a bit premature to wish this piece permanence within the museum, but it’s hard not to find the proposition compelling.
