Drawn primarily from the Blanton’s extensive collection of Latin American art, Words/Matter offers an innovative perspective on how artists of this region have explored the links between visual art and written language since the early decades of the twentieth century.

Celebrating the subversive aesthetics of artists’ books, painted poems, political posters, and large-scale conceptual installations, Words/Matter features artists working in a broad range of media, including Paulo Bruscky, Augusto de Campos & Julio Plaza, Antonio Caro, Nury González, Jorge Macchi, Leandro Katz, Jac Leirner, José Clemente Orozco, Mira Schendel, and Edgardo Antonio Vigo.
