"Summer Reading: The Recreation of Language in Twentieth-Century Art"
2001-06-29 until 2001-09-16
Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center, Vassar College
Poughkeepsie, NY, USA United States of America

To read is an optical act; to see well, a form of literacy. Vibrantly, variously, often playfully, word and image mutually recreated one another in art of the modern era.

Drawn from the collections of the Loeb Art Center and 14 public and private sources, this international survey unites paintings, photographs, prints, drawings, collages, books and book-objects, poet-artist collaborations, and more by over 50 artists including Guillaume Apollinaire, Joseph Beuys, Joe Brainard, Sophie Calle, Henry Darger, Marcel Duchamp, Joan Fontcuberta, Jenny Holzer, Georges Hugnet, Jess, Ray Johnson, Paul Klee, Joseph Kosuth, Stéphane Mallarmé, René Magritte, F. P. Marinetti, Abelardo Morell, Eduardo Paolozzi, Raymond Pettibon, Pablo Picasso, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Kurt Schwitters, Aaron Siskind, Saul Steinberg, Cy Twombly, Tristan Tzara, Chris Ware, Xu Bing. Thurs., Sep. 13: Poetry reading by John Ashbery.
