MoMA (New York)
Mira Schendel (Brazil, b. Switzerland, 1919–1988)
León Ferrari (Argentina, b. 1920)
(closes June 15)
is one of the most significant shows of alphabetic/lettrist art
to appear in a major New York museum.
The show focusses too much on the side-by-side comparison
of the two artists, diminishing both in the process, but
it is nonetheless a spectacular presention of both artists' work.
