Fred-Tomaselli

Here at Current, we have an obvious and vested interest in the status of print journalism. It’s a survival instinct. Artist Fred Tomaselli has an ongoing love with print as well, specifically the front page of The New York Times. Powered by his lifelong appreciation of the the paper and the gradual erosion of civility in public discourse, Tomaselli has spent the past ten years defacing the front page of the The Times to create his own surreal expression of the world. The UMMA will display a collection of his work in the Taubman Gallery starting October 4, with a guided tour set for Sunday, October 26 from 2-3pm. Tomaselli will speak as part of the Penny W. Stamps Speaker Series on October 2, 5:10pm at Michigan Theater.
