The News Network Project
Alison Alder, Marian Crawford, BaT & Emboss, Neil Emmerson, Richard Harding, Marion Wassenaar, and Trent Walter.
The News Network Project examines the dissemination and ubiquity of the News, and the relationship of this dispersal of information to the fine art print. This network of artists responds to current events and explore how the fields of the news, current events, the print and contemporary art intersect. Printed materials have a particular, historical relationship with current events that are made public in newspapers, magazines, websites and other media outlets. Responding to and recontextualising these materials, The News Network Project pairs the print’s capacity for sharing and spreading topical information with the special significance of the print as fine art object utilising strategies of repetition, authenticity and repositioning.
