Art Intermission Vol. 5
After an extended break, Art Intermission returns with a gem. The work of Tauba Auerbach falls somewhere between poetry and design. From creating her own font to her paintings of color coated anagrams, to a piece showing an alphabet of the spaces inside letters, to reordering texts (the Bible included) alphabetically, it's hard to pin a genre on her lapel. She studies language as a scientist might, drawing parallels whose importance we are left to consider.
