In the Tower: Mel Bochner

decoration06 Nov. 2011|08 April 2012
For some 45 years Mel Bochner has explored the intersections of linguistic and visual representation. As one of the pioneers of conceptual art during the 1960s, Bochner developed an art that causes us to read and see simultaneously - to "think" as we look. The exhibition will present 43 thesaurus-inspired paintings and drawings that span Bochner's career, including the thesaurus paintings Money, Die, Useless, Obscene, andSputter; a new monochrome painting (Blah, Blah, Blah); and four major diptychs that have never before been exhibited (Master of the Universe, Oh Well, Amazing!, and Babble).
