The New Museum will present 'The Last Newspaper,' a major exhibition inspired by the ways artists approach the news and respond to the stories and images that command the headlines. The exhibition will animate the Museum with signature artworks and a constant flow of information-gathering and processing undertaken by organizations and artist groups that have been invited to inhabit offices within the museum's galleries. For visitors, 'The Last Newspaper' will be a unique site of dialogue, participation, and critical thinking, posing new possibilities for a contemporary art museum experience. 'The Last Newspaper' will also include a selection of important art works from 1967 to the present, in which twenty-seven artists explore their own reactions to the news, the mechanics of its dispersal, or both.
