Art and the news on view at the Hutto-Patterson Exhibition Hall and HMCT South Campus Gallery and Showcases

Exhibition Dates:

July 7 through October 2, 2022

ArtCenter Exhibitions is pleased to announce Redact, Rewrite, Reframe, a collaborative exhibition with the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography (HMCT) at ArtCenter College of Design. The exhibition will occupy both the Hutto-Patterson Exhibition Hall and the HMCT South Campus Gallery and Showcases. Presented as two concurrent installations at the College, the exhibition will be part of a dynamic array of public offerings at ArtCenter and throughout Pasadena this summer.

Redact, Rewrite, Reframe presents work by a selection of artists and designers utilizing images and materials from news media in distinctive ways, with an emphasis on global sociopolitical events of the past two decades. Taking into account the ongoing debates about the subjectivity of the news, this exhibition is a timely opportunity to explore our current moment of an increasingly divided public. Skillfully using various media informed by graphic design, typography, collage, painting, and photography, the artists in Redact, Rewrite, Reframe examine the constructed and ideological nature of the news. These artists speak to the present moment, but they also recall diverse 20th century avant-gardes like Dada, Situationist International and the Pictures Generation.

Redact, Rewrite, Reframe features works by York Chang, Steve Hurd, Simon Johnston, Gloria Kondrup, Paula Scher, Rich Silverstein, Samira Yamin and Jemima Wyman.

About ArtCenter Exhibitions: ArtCenter Exhibitions is a program of public-facing curated spaces. Our programs seek to ignite emotional resonance, provoke intellectual dissonance and conjure unexpected pathways of thinking by connecting art and design with the social, scientific, humanitarian and poetic dimensions of our time. Galleries include the Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery at the College’s Hillside Campus, Peter and Merle Mullin Gallery at its South Campus and ArtCenter DTLA in downtown Los Angeles. Additional curated spaces include the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography Gallery (HMCT) and Hutto-Patterson Exhibition Hall located at ArtCenter's South Campus, as well as the Hillside Campus Student Gallery.

About the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography (HMCT): With generous support from the Lowell Milken Family Foundation , the College founded the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography ( HMCT) in 2015 to honor the memory of Professor Leah Hoffmitz Milken, a renowned typographer, letterform designer and esteemed ArtCenter faculty member. Dedicated to every aspect of the typographic field, HMCT serves as a catalyst for the enhanced study of typography and letterform design. As a meeting place for learning, discussion, and the exchange of ideas and skills, the HMCT presents workshops, special classes, symposia, lectures, exhibitions, and residency programs. HMCT Archive serves as a repository for original and rare materials that document the history and teaching of typography, letterform and graphic design. The HMCT is situated next to Archetype Press , which it oversees and maintains. The Press, a “working museum” boasting more than 2,500 cases of foundry metal and wood types, allows students to learn hands-on the art and skill of creating with letterpress type. HMCT exhibition spaces include the HMCT South Campus Gallery, Showcases, Storefront Gallery and 950 Outdoor Billboards.

About the Hutto-Patterson Exhibition Hall: In 2014, ArtCenter College of Design opened a new home for two of its dynamic visual arts programs—Undergraduate Art and Illustration—at the College’s South Campus in Pasadena. Renovation of the former post office was made possible in part because of the generosity of the Hutto-Patterson Charitable Foundation, providing a dramatic atrium space in the center of the building to showcase the work of ArtCenter students and visiting artists through a rotating series of exhibitions. Exhibitions are accompanied by public lectures and special events, and woven into the curriculum. In keeping with ArtCenter’s efforts to increase access, affordability and appreciation of art and design in our communities, the exhibition hall is free and open to the public.

About ArtCenter: Founded in 1930 and located in Pasadena, California, ArtCenter College of Design is a global leader in art and design education. ArtCenter offers 11 undergraduate and 10 graduate degrees in a wide variety of art and design disciplines.

Renowned for both its ties to industry and its social impact initiatives, ArtCenter is the first design school to receive the United Nations’ Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) status. Throughout the College’s long and storied history, ArtCenter alumni have had a profound impact on popular culture, the way we live and important issues in our society.
