Lorraine O’Grady, “Cutting Out CONYT” at Alexander Gray Associates

Until Saturday December 15 2018
In 1977, Lorraine O’Grady created a series of 26 collages titled “Cutting Out The New York Times (CONYT),” in which the veteran artist snipped headlines and bits of display type from the Gray Lady to create “found newspaper poems.” They reflected O’Grady’s observations about being a woman of color, and in this show, she revisits and revises those works, refashioning them as “haiku diptychs” bridging her experiences between then and now.
