Join artist Nathaniel Donnett as he gives a walking tour of the newsstand locations placed in valued locations in Third Ward for his Project/Site commission What’s The New News. Donnett will be accompanied by writers and artists involved in the project who will discuss their work as it relates to the history, culture, and situation of this community.
Led by Donnett, What’s The New News is a collaboration amongst creatives and the community that speaks to the importance of the neighborhood, artists, writers, and literacy. It interrupts the everyday with the everyday by asking the community to rethink how objects, art, and information are involved in our daily lives. Newspaper racks will be transformed into public art and placed in important and valued locations within the community. The information presented for the public will take the form of articles, experimental writing, raps, and poetry.
