The exhibition entitled Towards a New Theory of Color Reading (El Dia, Houston Forward Times, Manila Headline) 2008 is curated by Meredith Goldsmith.
Four-color newspapers printed in edition of 2000 each.
Bauhaus-style "newspapers" were printed and available free for gallery visitors. The layouts and formats were taken from three local Houston ethnic-based journals: El Dia (Spanish-Language), the Houston Forward Times (African-American), and the Manila Headline (Filipino-American). By abstracting the content of each publication, a new visual fomat was created for viewers to attempt to "read." Three bulletin boards served as a way to display all the pages at once.
