You may ask, what do artists have to say about journalism?

We have become masters of filtering media. What we lack is context and history to negotiate the significance of the news. This blog is about deconstructing and re-imagining the news.

Over the last eight months 365dop artists have analyzed and weighed the value of current events. Each artist approached the process in a different way, from illustrations by Chris Chappell , to embroidered works by Lauren DiCioccio, to collage works by Tracy Timmens. Some artists worked serially, approaching every day with the same focus. Others experimented, responding to specific events. (I encourage visitors to look at every artists’ portfolio for the residency).

September is a busy month for 365dop. For those of you in the NYC area, we have two very exciting exhibitions. The first is at DUMBO Arts Festival September 23-25, 2011 and the second is at NJCU September 30-October 27, 2011. Please learn more on our exhibitions page HERE

I will also be involved in the Aperture Foundation symposium: What Matters Now. joining Deborah Willis at her table.

In light of What Matters Now and the exhibitions, Kenneth Pietrobono and I wanted to do something a bit different for the month of September. Rather than inviting 10 new artists, we have invited the 365dop artists selected for the DUMBO & NJCU exhibitions. Some of the works produced in September will be curated into the Aperture Foundation exhibition in their prime Chelsea Gallery and added to the NJCU exhibition.

Artists will respond to the following topics for the first two weeks of September:

  • September 1-8: Re-imagine the front page (these works may be included in the Aperture Exhibition).
  • September 9-15: Consider the manipulation of imagery and the context of news.

We will also invite journalists and historians to guest post this month. If you are interested in participating in this discussion please email:

Many thanks,
