DICKINSON / WALSER OPENING RECEPTION This show brings together Emily Dickinson’s original poem manuscripts and Robert Walser’s microscripts for the first time in an art museum setting. Rarely in literature has the manner in which words are made been so integral to the way in which they might be read. The Dickinson / Walser exhibition, which proposes the notion that art may be used to make language, is a fitting corollary to Drawing Time, Reading Time, which appears concurrently in the Main Gallery. Curated by Claire Gilman. Image: Robert Walser, Microscript 419, 1927-28.

ROMAN SIGNER EXHIBITION For the High Line, Roman Signer presents his celebrated 8mm film Kayak. In the short work, Signer sits in a blue kayak clad in a black leather motorcycle jacket and a white helmet. Rather than commence his journey in the water, a truck tows Signer on a dry road as the bottom of the kayak is slowly scraped away. As Signer is dragged along a Swiss country road, a herd of dairy cows gallop alongside him, as if captivated by the surreal scene. By decontextualizing the familiar, Signer expands, in a humorously subversive and poetic vein, our view of the world. Image: Roman Signer, Kayak, 2000. Video Still.
