Exhibit preview: Fred Tomaselli: New York Times

From the March 21, 2013 edition

Artist Fred Tomaselli’s series “New York Times” is a compilation of striking reworked front pages of The Grey Lady in which the cover’s lead image is replaced with a colorful painted collage that drips with trip.

The contrast of the black-and-white, straightforward, and often disheartening daily news with Tomaselli’s multi-dimensional visual storytelling sounds the alarms for a desensitized public.
