Tangled Alphabets: León Ferrari and Mira Schendel is published to accompany the first comprehensive survey of the work of each artist in the United States. Ferrari and Schendel are among the most significant Latin American artists of the twentieth century. Active simultaneously in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s in the neighboring countries of Argentina and Brazil, they found inspiration in the written word and in the eloquence of spoken language, and they both used language as important visual subject matter.
This essential catalogue presents new insights into the artists' ground-breaking work, examining the connections and collisions between the visual arts, writing, politics, and religion in the oeuvres. In addition to over two hundred color reproductions, the book features essays by contibutors Andres Giunta, Rodrigo Naves, and Luis Perez-Oramas. 200 pp.; 200 illus.
