  • Anthony Elms: In A Word Trailer

    28 views 3 weeks ago
    Christopher Knowles: In a Word, co-organizer Anthony Elms speaks about the work of Christopher Knowles. Christopher Knowles (born 1959, New York; lives Brooklyn) is regarded as a poet and painter, yet his output is broader than this suggests. This exhibition, his most comprehensive to date, spans many mediums—text, sound, painting, drawing, sculpture, and performance—including pieces made in collaboration with esteemed theater director Robert Wilson.

    Christopher Knowles is regarded as a poet and painter, yet his output is broader than this suggests. The work records and reorders the everyday materials around us using incantatory rhythms and repetition. Typings of language permutations, reimagined song lyrics, interlocking blocks of raw color commonly depict family and close friends. Sculptures are precise and direct in construction: polka-dotted cones, brilliantly hued paper cutouts, Lego structures, and accumulations of wind-up alarm clocks. This exhibition is co-organized by Anthony Elms, Chief Curator of the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania, and Guest Curator Hilton Als, writer and chief theater critic for The New Yorker. Its presentation at CAMH is facilitated by Curator Dean Daderko. Show less
