Facing Extinction is an ambitious re-working of Gustav Metzger's seminal work Mass Media: Today and Yesterday. Thousands of newspapers stacked in a rectangular mass in the centre of the gallery space collected and sourced by staff and students from UCA and partner institutions.
During the opening and for the duration of the show, the public will be invited to interact with the work, selecting articles in response to the subject of extinction and pinning them to the gallery walls. Metzger's installation is intended to be a work in a state of flux; continually changing and growing as visitors are invited to add newspapers to the stack.
Project initiated by the Fine Arts Department at UCA, Farnham. Curated by Andrea Gregson.
