ArtCenter Exhibitions is pleased to announce Redact, Rewrite, Reframe, a collaborative exhibition with the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography (HMCT) at ArtCenter College of Design. The exhibition will occupy both the Hutto-Patterson Exhibition Hall and the HMCT South Campus Gallery and Showcases. Presented as two concurrent installations at the College, the exhibition will be part of a dynamic array of public offerings at ArtCenter and throughout Pasadena this summer.

Redact, Rewrite, Reframe presents work by a selection of artists and designers utilizing images and materials from news media in distinctive ways, with an emphasis on global sociopolitical events of the past two decades. Taking into account the ongoing debates about the subjectivity of the news, this exhibition is a timely opportunity to explore our current moment of an increasingly divided public. Skillfully using various media informed by graphic design, typography, collage, painting, and photography, the artists in Redact, Rewrite, Reframe examine the constructed and ideological nature of the news. These artists speak to the present moment, but they also recall diverse 20th century avant-gardes like Dada, Situationist International and the Pictures Generation.

Redact, Rewrite, Reframe features works by York Chang, Steve Hurd, Simon Johnston, Gloria Kondrup, Paula Scher, Rich Silverstein, Samira Yamin and Jemima Wyman.
