Word as Image: Highlights from the Marmor Collection
Words have figured in various guises throughout the history of art, frequently appearing in liturgical contexts including illuminated manuscripts in the Middle Ages or decoratively ornamented Qu’ranic writings from the Ottoman Empire. Throughout the 20th century, artists have used texts and lettering to reference a newly prevalent culture of mass production, to blur the lines between popular culture and fine art, and to upend seemingly simple meanings.
Ongoing every day from December 16, 2015 through April 4, 2016.
11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Open Wed-Mon 11am - 5pm, Thursdays until 8pm; admission is free. CLOSED TUESDAY.
