Calendar: Art Talk: Marvin Sackner in Conversation with Jennifer Inacio and René Morales

Event Description

On the occasion of the opening of From the truer world of the other: Typewriter Art from PAMM’s Collection, Marvin Sackner, co-founder of the Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry, will discuss the exhibition with PAMM curators Jennifer Inacio and René Morales. The panelists will comment on the different ways in which artists and poets have unleashed the creative potential of this once common machine. The exhibition will be on view November 17, 2017 through April 15, 2018.

From the truer world of the other: Typewriter Art from PAMM’s Collection presents a selection of works acquired from the Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry through a combined gift and purchase made possible by the generosity of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Ruth and Marvin A. Sackner, and the Sackner Family Partnership. Featuring the work of approximately 15 individuals—including Carl Andre, Henri Chopin, Dom Sylvester Houédard, d.a. levy, Leandro Katz, Françoise Mairey, and Gustave Morin—the exhibition explores how artists and poets have transformed the typewriter, a machine for office work, into a tool for experimental artistic and poetic expression. Harnessing the machine's inherent precision while defying its physical limits, these artists create a dizzying array of optical effects and novel forms of geometric abstraction.
