Rich Text, on view at Fleisher/Ollman from January 22 through February 21, includes work from contemporary artists whose use of text varies from single words to involved narratives, anti-aesthetic to highly designed, powerfully specific to poetic and nonsensical. In some cases, text retains its communicative power, while in others, it dissolves into form and object, blurring the line between looking and reading.
The artists featured in the exhibition include Conrad Bakker, Mel Bochner, Natasha Bowdoin, Anthony Campuzano, Alex Da Corte, John Evans, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Mark Lombardi, Mark Mahosky, Jayson Musson, John O'Connor, Justin Quinn, Trevor Reese, Isaac Resnikoff, Kay Rosen, Josh Shaddock, Jack Sloss, Bob and Roberta Smith, Jina Valentine, Wayne White and Andrew Jeffrey Wright.
