TAKE MY WORD FOR IT
This exhibition brings together numerous text-based works, drawn primarily from the Museum’s permanent collection, which examine ways that artists use language to directly engage the viewer. Drawings, prints, and books by Clifford Amyx, Luis Camnitzer, Van Deren Coke, Wendy Ewald, Hans Haacke, Jenny Holzer, Susan E. King, Barbara Kruger, Les Levine, Kay Rosen, Edward Ruscha, Tad Savinar, Pat Steir, Catherine Wagner, Kara Walker, and others, offer a range of language that is meant to be looked at, as well as read. Hand drawn or printed, and combining various fonts and degrees of legibility, the artworks address a range of subjects and conditions, from poetics to politics.
