'The Last Newspaper', a hybrid exhibition co-curated by Richard Flood, Director of Special Projects and Curator at Large of the New Museum, and Benjamin Godsill, Curatorial Associate, took inspiration by the ways artists approach the news and respond to the stories and images that command the headlines. Alongside the exhibition, a number of partner organisations, including Latitudes, used on-site offices to present their research and stage public dialogues, opening up the exhibition galleries as spaces of intellectual production as well as display.

'THE LAST POST' / 'THE LAST GAZETTE' / 'THE LAST REGISTER'... was an evolving-titled 12-page free weekly newspaper and an incremental exhibition catalogue edited during a 10 week editorial residency by Latitudes. Produced from a micro-newsroom placed on the third exhibition floor of the New Museum, the tabloids were an archive in formation companioning The Last Newspaper’s exhibition, artworks and events, as well as being a platform for critical reflection on the wider agency of art and artists with respect to concerns about how information is produced, managed, recorded, re-ordered, and disseminated.

Each new issue was available for free from the museum galleries each Wednesday (#1 The Last Post: 5 October (exhibition preview); #2 The Last Gazette: 13 October; #3 The Last Register: 20 October; #4 The Last Star-Ledger: 27 October; #5 The Last Monitor: 3 November; #6 The Last Observer: 10 November; #7 The Last Evening Sun: 17 November; #8 The Last Journal: 24 November; #9 The Last Times: 1 December; #10 The Last Express: 8 December), and was distributed exclusively in printed format – although exclusive content was posted on Latitudes’ blog and Facebook.

The published record, designed by Chad Kloepfer and Joel Stillman, is the surrogate catalogue of The Last Newspaper. Featuring over 100 contributors, including essays and interviews with participating artists, the compilation also brings together articles and special features around an expanded selection of work that addresses the news, the newspaper, and its evolving form and function.

The Last Newspaper news team: Latitudes with Janine Armin, Greg Barton, Irina Chernyakova, Collin Munn and Gwen Schwartz. Francesc Ruiz contributed a weekly cartoon strip entitled 'The Woods', while Ester Partegàs & collaborators devised each week's advertising.

'The Last Newspaper' fue una exposición híbrida comisariada por Richard Flood (Director de proyectos especiales y Comisario at Large del New Museum) y Benjamin Godsill (Comisario Asociado), que exploró el modo en que los artistas responden a las noticias, imágenes y titulares y al tiempo analizó cómo se genera, gestiona, registra, ordena y distribuye la información. Un número de organizaciones asociadas, incluida Latitudes, fueron invitadas a 'desplazar' sus espacios de trabajo al terreno museístico para trabajar y participar en diálogos públicos, convirtiendo las galerías del museo en espacios de exhibición, producción y discurso.

Durante una residencia editorial de 10 semanas, Latitudes editó un tabloide semanal de 12 páginas realizado ‘en directo’ desde una micro sala de redacción instalada en la tercera planta del New Museum. El proyecto fue por un lado, una plataforma de reflexión entorno a la producción, organización, transmisión y distribución de información y por otro, se enfocó en los artistas y organizaciones participantes en la exposición, ofreciendo entrevistas y artículos sobre sus proyectos.

Cada miércoles durante 10 semanas se presentó un nuevo número (#1 The Last Post: 6 Octubre; #2 The Last Gazette: 13 Octubre; #3 The Last Register: 20 Octubre; #4 The Last Star-Ledger: 27 Octubre; #5 The Last Monitor: 3 Noviembre; #6 The Last Observer: 10 Noviembre; #7 The Last Evening Sun: 17 Noviembre; #8 The Last Journal: 24 Noviembre; #9 The Last Times: 1 Diciembre; #10 The Last Express: 8 Diciembre), disponible gratuita y exclusivamente en formato impreso – aunque se ofrecían contenidos ‘en exclusiva’ via el blog de Latitudes y vía Facebook.

Los tabloides, diseñados por Chad Kloepfer y Joel Stillman, constituyeron un 'archivo en formación' de la exposición y de sus eventos, cambiando de título y color semanalmente. Con un 95% de nuevos contenidos, la compilación final es el catálogo de la exposición The Last Newspaper e incluye más de 100 artículos, textos, páginas de artistas y entrevistas.

Equipo del The Last Newspaper: Latitudes con Janine Armin, Greg Barton, Irina Chernyakova, Collin Munn y Gwen Schwartz. Francesc Ruiz contribuyó una tira cómica semanal titulada 'The Woods', y Ester Partegàs junto con puntuales colaboradores, se encargó del departamento de publicidad y marketing.
