Gallery Talk with Jennifer Carty – New to the Cantor: Dashiell Manley
November 5, 2016 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Location: Cantor Arts Center - Map Link
Jennifer Carty, Curatorial Assistant, leads a gallery talk through New to the Cantor: Dashiell Manley.
For over a century, artists have employed the newspaper as a source of inspiration, communication, and even as an artistic medium. Los Angeles-based artist Dashiell Manley upholds this tradition by deftly translating the news into large-scaled, visually stunning art objects that slip enticingly between text and abstract painting. This solo exhibition calls into question the ways in which we experience current events and the value of print journalism in an age increasingly mediated through digital media.
