The art: Zoe Strauss, proof of a potential layout from her forthcoming book “On the Beach.” The project and book chronicle the aftermath of the BP/Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The proof is from 2011, the photographs are from 2010.
The news: "BP to Pay $7.8 Billion to Settle Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Lawsuit, Is It a Bad Deal for Gulf Residents?" on Democracy Now! radio.
The source: Zoe Strauss’s Flickr.
Nota bene: Strauss is currently the subject of this solo exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. In 2010 she and I conducted this Q&A about her “On the Beach” project on Modern Art Notes: Part one, part two. She was also a guest on The Modern Art Notes Podcast earlier this year. She was a great guest. I guarantee you’ll love the program.
