The Power Plant is proud to present Postscript: Writing After Conceptual Art, featuring paintings, sculpture, installation, video and works on paper from the 1960s to the present by over fifty artists and writers exploring the artistic possibilities of language.
Postscript: Writing After Conceptual Art features the work of over fifty artists and writers exploring the artistic possibilities of language. The exhibition includes paintings, sculpture, installation, video and works on paper from the 1960s to the present that raise questions about how we read, look at, hear, and process language today. Postscript explores the field of literature known as “conceptual writing,” contrasting it directly to the field of contemporary art, and therefore offering new insights into the meaning of both literature and art. Postscript is the first exhibition to examine the work of conceptual writing, investigating the roots of the movement in the art of the 1960s and 70s and presenting contemporary examples of text-based art practices.
Postscript was on view at Museum of Contemporary Art Denver from 12 October, 2012 – 2 February, 2013. This exhibition is accompanied by a major publication, which includes both scholarly essays and contributions by select writers and artists featured in the exhibition.
