The King Is Dead*

October - December 2020

Our 2020 Exhibition & Program series The King Is Dead* will explore how we understand and use the news—how it guides our daily activities, gives us current information, and does (or doesn’t) relate to the facts. Through historic voices and sources, the exhibition will use print journalism to shed light on how and when people know what they know.

Corresponding educational and cultural programming will examine how we define what is newsworthy; how new platforms are changing the way we consume and share news; and what it means to be “media literate;” among other topics.
