A panel of artists and journalists will discuss the impact of images in the news media at the Getty Center's Harold M. Williams Auditorium in Los Angeles at 7:00pm on Wednesday, March 29, 2017.
Do images really help us understand the news? An image is worth a thousand words. But is that still true? As images have begun to surpass text in our understanding of the world, we’re starting to recognize just how deceiving and confusing images can be. In conjunction with the exhibition Breaking News: Turning the Lens on Mass Media, this panel of artists and journalists discuss the impact of images in the news media. Presented with Zócalo Public Square.
