Joe Brainard - Tibor de Nagy Gallery

Untitled (Rogue River Valley Pears) 1976 collage
"The gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of selected works by the artist along with a display of his never before exhibited artist books and manuscripts, in celebration of the publication by The Library of America of The Collected Writings of Joe Brainard, edited by Ron Padgett, with an introduction by Paul Auster. The exhibition will comprise works on paper including collages, watercolors, and gouaches. Many of the works relate to writing, including images that incorporate text as both thought bubbles as well as compositional elements. The works are humorous and often have a sweetness to them."
