Scope and Contents

This exhibition deals with poetry off the page onto the walls of the gallery, including sculptures, paintings, films and videos. Curated by Jay Sanders and Charles Bernstein, the works "offer a constellation of intellectually compelling, poetically dense, visually dazzling works that represent some of the most exciting efforts in current practice." Catalogue essays were contributed by Jay Sanders and Charles Bernstein. Johanna Drucker's text is titled, "Plastic Modalities: Emerging Sentience." Tom Phillips' text is from "Notes on A Humument." The Sackners lent eight original pages from "A Humument." John Cage describes his work "Not Wanting To Say Anything About Marcel," a work lent to the exhibition by the Sackners. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
