Metaphor as Manifestation
An Exhibition of Prints by Jasper Johns and Robert Motherwell
Metaphor as Manifestation is an exhibition of works by Jasper Johns (b. 1930 )and Robert Motherwell (1915-1991), two very significant and well known artists of the post-World War II and contemporary periods.
The exhibition features prints produced in cross-disciplinary collaborative efforts between Motherwell and the Spanish poet Rafael Alberti (1902-1999); and Jasper Johns and the avant-garde novelist and poet Samuel Beckett (1906-1989.) These creative projects interrogate the intersections of visual and literary art forms by experimenting with the relationships of image and text.
This exhibition of prints by Robert Motherwell and Jasper Johns from the collection of JUST Art, Inc. (Justin Baldwin) was organized by JUST Art, Inc.
