Text Without Message: Christopher Wool

Exhibition Website

Jan 7 2017 - Apr 30 2017

Art world superstar Christopher Wool (American, b. 1955) debuts new work at Philbrook Downtown exploring text, abstraction, and the intersections between the two. Using preexisting symbols—words, letters, punctuation marks, and numbers—Wool detaches them from our usual understanding of how language functions. See why The New Yorker magazine hails Wool as "the most important American painter of his generation."
