Our current exhibition Joan Miró: Birth of the World illustrates the profound influence of avant-garde poetry on Miró’s visual language. Miró is not alone—words are at play throughout MoMA’s collection, from Sol LeWitt’s written instructions for creating his works to Edward Ruscha’s airbrushed lettering in The End. Explore works that use words to challenge artistic convention, handpicked by the people who know the Museum collection best—our staff.
