This collection brings together the art and combination of image and language. Poems and Pictures was organized by guest curator Kyle Schlesinger and examines the relationship between seeing and reading, and language and visual art. Featuring 90 artworks from presses in operation between 1945 and 1981, the work is committed to provocative writings with equally inspiring imagery. In order to provide example for the transformation of this sort of art a featured selection of contemporary work from the 1990s to present is also presented. A bibliography, checklist of exhibition, and index are included.
