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.

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,
