Poets, Painters, & Paper: Post-World War II American Avant-Garde Art:

June - August 2018

The artworks presented in “Poets, Painters, and Paper” are the products of a turbulent social and political time in America—a time rife with racial and gender inequality, growing anti-war sentiment, and, hovering over it all like a mushroom cloud, the constant threat of nuclear annihilation. For avant-garde artists and poets alike, this was a time for breaking down the rigid barriers between high and low art, a time for collaborative imagination, and thus a time to break down the myth of the solitary (and hyper-masculine) artist-genius as perpetuated by images of Jackson Pollock in the popular press. It was also a time of creative cross-over, when the relationships between text and image were once again ardently explored with the fervor of earlier Modernist experimentation.
