Disappearing Ink: Curated by John Salvest

Does the apparent triumph of electronic over print media mean that the daily newspaper will soon no longer exist as a physical object? The Art Museum of the University of Memphis requests your participation in an exhibition addressing the changing face of print media and its effect on contemporary culture. Do you have a treasured newspaper clipping, perhaps the obituary of a loved one, or the news coverage of a significant event or individual accomplishment, or just a story that mattered enough for you to take the time to save it? The museum is seeking any form of personally meaningful artifact from any time period involving the traditional printed newspaper. Clippings, pages, complete newspapers, and vehicles for the display or preservation of such ephemera (scrapbooks, bulletin boards, even refrigerator doors) are welcomed. The museum requests that each participant also provide a written statement explaining the personal significance of his or her contribution. The collected artifacts will be curated and arranged by artist John Salvest in the museum’s galleries with the assistance of the museum staff. An on-line archive of submissions will also be created. Submitted materials will be carefully cataloged and returned to the lender after the conclusion of the exhibition.

  • Complete official AMUM loan documents
  • Take photo with news artifact (optional)
  • Record statement about why it is important to you (optional)
