A Careful Reading Between the Lines Is Required / Cotter, Holland; Camnitzer L., 2011

 Item
Identifier: CC-52180-73301
Scope and Contents

The reviewer writes, " What the show conveys most decisively, though, is a poetic side of Mr. Camnizer's art. Various writers have compared his text-driven pieces to concrete poetry - a genre based on how words function visually, rather that verbally, and that takes the instability of language as a given. The artist himself rejects this reading, insisisting that he has no interest in poetry, even dislikes what he sees as its artificiality and penchant for ego-centered sentimentality." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
