Words without thoughts never to heaven go - Almine Rech Editions 2018
This catalogue was published in conjunction with the group exhibition ‘Words Without Thoughts Never to Heaven Go’ curated by Dieter Bucchart which took place at Almine Rech Gallery New York from October 31 to December 16, 2017 with Andy Warhol , Barbara Kruger , Ed Ruscha , Jean-Michel Basquiat , Joseph Kosuth , Pablo Picasso , René Magritte , Robert Morris , and Sol LeWitt etc..
In a time where the word as a written unity—i.e. the meaning of the word and the displayed word—have become highly disparate due to digital and social media, the exhibition ‘Words Without thoughts Never to heaven go’ points towards the actuality of a thorough examination of the word in artworks. The exhibition followed the increasing importance of words in art, starting from modernism and leading up through the twentieth century and into today.
Features the essays “Words Without Thoughts Never to Heaven Go” by Dieter Buchhart; “Making a Mark:Words in the Image“ by Eric Robertson and “WORD-HEAVEN“ by Richard Shiff.
