Some artists have always functioned beyond the "isms" of art history, following personal and unique paths, sometimes shaped by biography, but just as often informed by devotion to a specific subject matter, medium, or technique. Glossolalia: Languages of Drawing, featuring selected works from MoMA's drawings collection, reveals the underlying and unexpected links between the works of a diverse group of artists. Ultimately, the exhibition suggests that even amidst iconoclasm, isolation, or the pursuit of invented worlds and obsessions, shared methods can lead to a common visual language.
Organized by Connie Butler, The Robert Lehman Foundation Chief Curator of Drawings.
