Nothing in the News

an installation of Sideline Collective editions

Location: Crosett Library

November 13 – December 15

Usdan Gallery collaborates with Crossett Library to present “Nothing in the News,” a series of international newspapers stripped of content. An ongoing project of the art and design group Sideline Collective, “Nothing in the News” comments on the data overload of everyday life. During November and December, visitors to the library can find Sideline Collective editions on tables and shelves mixed with ordinary newspapers and periodicals.

The display of “Nothing in the News” coincides with an installation on Bennington buildings of Alexandra Bell’s “Counternarratives”—also a critical reimagining of the physical newspaper. Working only with the New York Times, Bell edits and reconfigures articles to reveal assumptions and biases about race and gender.
