With talk of the media and “fake news,” what better way to celebrate the media than by seeing an exhibition dedicated to artists inspired by the news. “Breaking News: Turning the Sense on Mass Media,” currently on view at the Getty Center until April 30, artists such as Donald Blumberg and Alfredo Jaar provide commentary on the media by utilizing news footage and prints to create new works of art that challenge society’s interpretation of the media and the news presented.
