Luis Camnitzer, This is a poetic statement. Identify the elements that construct the poem. From the series "The Assignment Books", 2011

Luis Camnitzer included in the group exhibition Turn of Phrase: Language and Translation in Global Contemporary Art at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art in Brunswick, ME.

The institutions press release follows:

This exhibition examines the critical and creative functions of language in global contemporary art from the 1980s to the present. While language has been fundamental to art-making and human expression from antiquity to the present, its ability to unpack meaning, challenge conventions, and explore hybrid identities is now more relevant than ever. Drawing on the Museum’s permanent collection and highlighting several recent acquisitions, the exhibition provides vibrant examples for how the use of language is embedded in art and its encounter. Turn of Phrase emphasizes language’s capacity for innovation, intervention, and disruption in rewriting artistic landscapes of the past four decades.
