Counternarratives at Charlie James Gallery


  • Charlie James Gallery 969 Chung King Road Los Angeles (map)

Presented as a series of boldly reworked New York Times articles, each of the six works exhibited in Counternarratives perform visual examinations that reveal news media’s complicity in perpetuating racial prejudice in America. Through redactions of original text, revised headlines, and margins replete with red sharpie annotations, Bell reveals the implicit biases that control how narratives involving communities of color are depicted and in turn disseminated under the aegis of journalistic ‘objectivity.’
