Alexandra Mir @ Hayward Gallery

7 January 2019 - 4 February 2019

In the Pre-Presidential Library, Aleksandra Mir presents a collection of US tabloid front covers dating from 1986 to 2000. Each front cover, enlarged to two metres high, features a headline that relates to Donald Trump’s business dealings, political aspirations or personal life. Mir’s selection of front covers from the New York Daily News and New York Post is part of a larger collection that the artist compiled in 2007 during a period of research in the microfiche archives of New York Public Library. Together, these reproduced pages – each one copied from microfiche film, damaged through heavy public use over a long period of time – offer a study of the attitudes and biases of the tabloid press: what makes headline news, and why?
