 Idea as work of art: that is the radical proposition examined in Sculpture in So Many Words: Text Pieces 1960–80. Comprised of text sculptures from the 1960s and 1970s, this exhibition sheds fresh light on the intellectual foundations underpinning much of contemporary art.

Francisco Moreno at Oliver Francis Gallery

Oliver Francis Gallery opened the second solo exhibition of gallery artist Francisco Moreno, Dormant Subversion, on October 6th. In his paintings, and "paint-stallations", Moreno confronts anxieties about the role of painting in the information age. Using media saturated iconography and news headlines as source material, Moreno explores the contradictions of American identity, raises questions about the value of labor, and considers how living in the media age of shapes our understanding of personal and collective history.
