León Ferrari and Mira Schendel: Tangled Alphabets
León Ferrari and Mira Schendel are among the most significant Latin American artists of the 20th century. Active during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s in the neighbouring countries of Argentina and Brazil, they found inspiration in the written word and in the eloquence of spoken language. Their striking visual production coincided with a period of significant focus on language by philosophers and artists. León Ferrari & Mira Schendel is published to accompany the first comprehensive exhibition of the work of these two artists in the United States, presenting new insights on the artists' deconstruction of language through a visual repertoire and examining the connections and collisions between the visual arts, the written form, politics and religion.
