DESCRIPTION

A collaboration between EFA Project Space and Telephone with Ugly Duckling Presse

EFA Project Space, in collaboration with Telephone present Telefone Sem Fio: Word-Things of Augusto de Campos Revisted.  This exhibition uses the work of the Brazilian poet Augusto de Campos as a catalyst for an experimental multi-disciplinary exercise in which an outstanding group of poets, translators and artists, who exist across a continuum of text, sound and visual expression, invent translations of select examples of De Campos' work.

Augusto de Campos is a poet, translator, music critic, and visual artist whose work emphasizes the direct connections between language, sound, and image.  He was one of the originators of Concrete Poetry, an international movement that began in the 1950s and continues to influence the work of musicians, visual artists, and writers today.
