The avant-garde movements of the early twentieth century had a great interest in compositions that transcended the boundaries between the realms of language, sound and visuals. The tour looks at the shapes of merging between lyric and music in the works of Jean/Hans Arp, whose associative play with linguist ambiguity finds its pictorial counterpart in his collages, sculptures and reliefs. The dissolution of traditional barriers between visual art, poetry, theater and music, with the inclusion of materials previously outside the realm of art, also inspired the artist and critc Brian O’Doherty. Looking at his Aspen box and other works in the show, the tour talks about works in which intermedia boundaries dissolve.
