Looking at journal and newspaper articles as primary sources, this paper reflects on a pairing of the fields of journalism with contemporary visual art as a possibility for the public voicing of private solutions to current politics and public events. The paper examines how artworks produced in the privacy of the artist’s studio might be compared and linked to more public expressions of opinion found in the publication of the news. Does a creative artwork when paired with the print’s historical connection to the spread of news, and to circulation, multiplicity and sharing, embody or present an opportunity for an expression of optimism for the future?
