TANGLED ALPHABETS

If I lived in New York I'd definitely be going to see this show at MOMA, a joint exhibition of works by South American artists Mira Schendel and Leon Ferrari. The controversial political statements in Ferrari's work are definitely worth the visit, but aesthetically speaking, I gravitate towards Schendel's sketchy and often illegible letters. It almost looks as if millions of little insects have swarmed the paper. I just love the way it looks.
