The Graduate Program in Media Studies at Pratt Institute is thrilled to announce that the highly acclaimed multidisciplinary artist Alexandra Bell will be kicking off our Fall 2017 Public Events.
Today, Alexandra Bell may be best known for her critical media art project "Counternarratives," a series of massively enlarged New York Times articles edited to expose the media's ideological biases and racial assumptions. By posting these edits in everyday public spaces in New York City, Bell is working to reshape the public imaginary around the construction, consumption, and circulation of information. "Counternarratives demands that we reconsider the ideological patterns and social effects of the news and the politics of information more broadly.
Please join us!
All of our events are free and open to the public.
