Art as a Musicular Principle
Curated by Craig Leonard

June 4 – July 17, 2012
Wallace Berman, as chronicled by his son Tosh in Blastitude #13, was as fastidious about his choice of music by which to work (John Coltraine, The Kinks, Roxy Music,…) as he was with the artwork on which he labored. Berman’s alluring verifax collages frequently mirror his musical attraction with their repeated inclusion of transistor radios hosting miscellaneous surface images ranging from the everyday to the arcane, while often transmitting Hebrew letters that mystically conjure Cabbalistic significance. Berman’s “visualization of sound” is the inspiration for the grouping of works in “Art as a Musicular Principle” — itself a titular resounding of a 1975 exhibition in which Berman took part (as well as a adjectival prank bound to confuse search engines!).
