The Youngest Day

 - The Youngest Day
A newspaper format publication by artist and curator Mathew Hale, derived from an exhibition of 24 LA and Berlin-based artists.
The Youngest Day is a 20-page Berliner format newspaper that captures the spirit of the exhibition, with the same name, curated by artist Mathew Hale at carlier|gebauer in Berlin in the summer of 2021. This publication, like the exhibition itself, is a personal reflection by Hale on the peculiarities of living and making art in Los Angeles—a city "at the back of the world's day"—and on how it would be to experience such work in the contrasting city of Berlin. Designed by Santiago da Silva, this newsprint publication explores the work of all twenty-four artists that participated in The Youngest Day exhibition and includes personalized mastheads designed by Hale in tribute to each.
With Nancy Buchanan, Jedediah Caesar, Fiona Connor, Tacita Dean, Thomas Demand, Fred Eversley, Morgan Fisher, Aaron Fowler, Nikita Gale, Piero Golia, Alexandra Grant, Mathew Hale, Margaret Honda, Luchita Hurtado, Joey Kötting, Sharon Lockhart, Nicole Miller, Eamon Ore-Giron, Laura Owens, Glen Rubsamen, Eddie Ruscha, Betye Saar, Asha Schechter, Rosha Yaghmai.

Mathew Hale is an artist, writer and curator based in Los Angeles and Berlin. Over the past ten years, he has presented solo exhibitions in Berlin, Los Angeles, Paris, Mexico City, New York, Kitakyushu, San Francisco and Melbourne. Hale contributed the essay, Julie Mehretu: The Origin of the Work (On Two New Paintings) to Julie Mehretu, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 2019.

Santiago da Silva's work concentrates on book design, printed matter, communication, and display systems within the cultural and contemporary art context. The work is based on research, experimentation, and dialogue, leading to a varied visual vocabulary, informed by the content and character of each project. He is the co-founder and editor of Object Notes, a platform for investigating the notions of handcraft and labor in contemporary art and design.
