“Saudi King Says Jets Are Needed to Curb Reds’ Mideast Gains.” “Quayle Meets With Saudi Royalty and Seeks More Aid for Military.” These are two of the hundreds of headlines that A.J. Bocchino harvested from nearly seven decades of New York Times stories relating to what he calls a long-standing oil-for-protection bargain between Saudi Arabia and the United States. A very large dye-sublimation print of the headlines is included in All the News That’s Fit to Print, opening Friday, Jan. 24, in the Spector Ripps Project Space at the Center for Contemporary Arts.

The exhibition also features All the Heads on the Front Pages of the New York Times. The 12 drawings in this series — each one a crowded cluster of sketchy head shapes — were made by artist Pat Boas in the first year of the new millennium. Another work relating to the nation’s “newspaper of record” is Quotidian by Donna Ruff. The Santa Fe-based artist is co-curator of All the News with CCA visual arts director Erin Elder. The other artists represented in the exhibit — all incorporating The New York Times into their work — are Lauren DiCioccio, Shanti Grumbine, Elissa Levy, Francesca Pastine, Guy Richards Smit, Adam Simon, and Fred Tomaselli.
