News / Not News

May 3 - June 27

Marcia Annenberg
Fineberg Family Community Room

As a painter, installation artist, curator and climate activist, M. Annenberg investigates the black holes of American journalism. Has the two minute sound bite failed the American people?
As we bear witness to the slippage of journalism in our time, the problem of the omission of news, especially the sparse reporting of climate studies, is less well understood as a strategy, that prevents civic engagement. In this talk, I will trace the decline of news coverage in the American mainstream press from the 1990’s to the present. Are our oceans acidifying? Are the glaciers melting? Will we breach 1.5 degrees of warming this decade? Is there a climate emergency? If so, why don’t we all know it, beyond a reasonable doubt.
M. Annenberg is a Conceptual artist. Her paintings, sculptures, installations and videos focus on under- reported stories in American media, concentrating on scientific studies and global warming.
