Cubic Poetry

Drawn principally from the Getty Research Institute‘s collection of prints, artists’ books, journals and manuscripts documenting the international concrete poetry movement, Concrete Poetry: Words and Sounds in Graphic Space focuses on the visual, verbal and sonic experiments of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Featuring works by foundational figures Augusto de Campos and Ian Hamilton Finlay, it explores how these artists invented new forms. In Los Angeles until 30 July.
