From the truer world of the other: Typewriter Art from the PAMM Collection presents a selection of works acquired from the Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry through a combined gift and purchase made possible by the generosity of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and Marvin and Ruth Sackner. Featuring the work of approximately 15 individualsincluding Carl Andre, Henri Chopin, Dom Sylvester Houdard, d.a. levy, Franoise Mairey, and Gustave Morinthe exhibition explores how artists and poets have transformed the typewriter, a machine for office work, into a tool for experimental artistic and poetic expression. Harnessing the machines inherent precision while defying its physical limits, these artists create a dizzying array of optical effects and novel forms of geometric abstraction.
