The Altered Page
An exhibition of selections from the Ruth and Marvin Sackler Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry was held at the Book Arts Gallery from February 6 to March 26, 1988. The artwork represented in this show breaks the barrier of traditional books, artists books and even the two dimensional page. The works of these artists and poets were grouped into the following seven categories of visual/verbal alterations: Hidden Meanings; Canceled; Cut, Torn, Crumpled, Perforated; Fragmented; Layered; Sculpted; Sewn and Woven. Illustrations are in black and white and in color. The introduction by Marvin Sackler describes the collection from which the works were selected and provides the background of several of the projects.
