yummy type luscious paper

MoMA beckons with two enticing exhibits. Tangled Alphabets: León Ferrari and Mira Schendel, at MoMA April 5-June 15, 2009. "Their works address language as a major visual subject matter: the visual body of language, the embodiment of voices as words and gestures, and language as a metaphor of the worldly aspect of human existence through the eloquence of naming and writing." ~Museum of Modern Art

Paper: Pressed, Stained, Slashed, Folded at MoMA March 11-June 22, 2009. "This exhibition focuses on works on paper, including prints, illustrated books, and selected drawings, that explore and manipulate the materiality of paper itself." ~Museum of Modern Art
