The Getty Research Institute (GRI) announced the acquisition of a suite of prints, a folded paper poem, and an artist’s book by the Scottish artist and poet Ian Hamilton Finlay, as well as a 3D “cubepoem” by the Brazilian artist and poet Augusto de Campos. The poems will be among the more than 100 works featured in the upcoming exhibition Concrete Poetry: Words and Sounds in Graphic Space, on view at the Getty Research Institute from March 28 through July 30, 2017. The exhibition explores the foundational decades of concrete poetry, a major postwar international movement that treated language as a visual and spatial construct.
