DERBY.- All that Fits: The Aesthetics of Journalism is on display in QUAD Gallery from Saturday 28th May until Sunday 31st July 2011. A new exhibition exploring the apparently opposite realms of Journalism and Art.

All that Fits: The Aesthetics of Journalism presents the provocative idea that art and journalism are two sides of a unique activity; the production and distribution of images and information. The exhibition brings to surface how images and information are communicated, and the aesthetic principles used in the act of transmission.

Whereas journalism provides a view on the world, as it ‘really’ is; art often presents a view on the view, truth posited as acts of reflection. All that Fits: The Aesthetics of Journalism examines both as systems of information that define truth in terms of the visible but also what can be imagined.

The exhibition is presented in three chapters: The Speaker, The Image and The Militant. These three separate displays of artwork respond to the overall theme and each include new artworks. ‘The Speaker’ runs from 28th May - 19th June, ‘The Image’ runs from 22nd June - 10th July and ‘The Militant’ runs from 13th - 31st July.

All that Fits: The Aesthetics of Journalism is curated by Alfredo Cramerotti and Simon Sheikh. Artists include, among others: Eric Baudelaire (France), Katya Sander (Denmark), Renzo Martens (Holland), Hito Steyerl (Germany) and Walid Raad/The Atlas Group, (USA/Lebanon). In conjunction with the main exhibition, NEWS! New Event World Spectacular is on display in the QUAD Corridors and Digital Screens. Lauren Mele and Hannah Conroy have been commissioned to investigate ties between contemporary art and journalism and its increasingly progressive relationship. Loosely based on Fay Nicholson’s blog, ‘An ABC of Aesthetic Journalism’, NEWS! New Event World Spectacular attempts to portray a comprehensive array of interpretations of the aesthetics of journalism; and to serve as a platform for further thought and discussion beyond the gallery walls. NEWS! New Event World Spectacular is also on display from Saturday 28th May until Sunday 31st July 2011.
