WORDS & #S. Barry A. Rosenberg and Carol A. Nathanson. Museum of Contemporary Art, Wright State University, Dayton, 1991. 120 pp. with 55 ills. (22 col.). 26 x 22 cm. ISBN 0932706185 In English.
Emphasizing recent creations by American artists, this chiefly pictorial catalogue surveys the emergence of text as a central device in art works of the past three decades, including representative pieces from the 1960s and 70s by such figures as Lichtenstein, Indiana and Kawara and works of the late 80s by Jaar, Kruger, Bickerton, General Idea and 20 other artists. Two essays review the experimental use of text by Futurist, Cubist and other avant-garde artists of the early 20th century, discuss the influence of Pop and Conceptual art on current trends, and note the increasingly political content of text-based works.
