Make Perhaps This Out Sense Of Can You
On Exhibit: August 30th - December 16th, 2007
Bob Cobbing (1920-2002, England) is a Concrete Text-Sound poet whose works are represented in the Sackner Archive of Concrete & Visual Poetry — "Archive" rather than collection because it is a community space. Make Perhaps This Out Sense Of Can You is an intermedia event — a mutual in/de/re/flection of text, sound, image and bodies. During this exhibition, the Rosenwald Gallery becomes a participatory site. In it, a fracture occurs: the word as word, sound, sight & communication as coordination — what Khlebnikov calls "two circles of shooting stars"; a textual cosmology — dissolving the metaphor "a body of language" and giving way to the generative concept that communication occurs as a LANGUAGE OF BODIES.
Wednesday, October 10th, 5:30pm: Exhibition reception
The Rosenwald Gallery was located on the 6th floor of the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center.
