WORD at Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art

Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art
February 17 - December 17, 2016
Words have appeared historically as artistic forms in illuminated manuscripts, in Arabic text on the walls of mosques and in its mosaic murals, on Chinese calligraphic scrolls.  ‘Word’ as contemporary art form has been popularized by contemporary artists Ruche, Wiener, Kruger and Holzer, Anastasi and others.  Words have the power to hurt and to heal, to be offered as prayer or diatribe. Some of these ‘word’ facets will be explored in the works presented at the HVCCA.

View the catalog of the exhibition, and the online auction.
