New collages by CIA faculty Sarah Kabot takes over the Spotlight space, with an opening reception on Sept. 16. For the year 2015, Kabot collected all of the front-page sections of The New York Times Sunday edition. These photographically documented events were deemed significant enough to be reported in a global newspaper of record, yet less than a year later, most have slipped out of the headlines. In her series, NYT 2015, Kabot collages together photographs of people printed in a single edition from that year, creating delicate cut-out compositions that encourage viewers to carefully look at the remains. freehttp://www.heightsarts.org
