ART AND LITERATURE
(April 9 - 15, 2020)
There exist many bridges between art and literature. Often literature inspires art, and it is not uncommon for visual art to also inspire literature. Art and literature also occasionally merge into one another. Louise Robert paints sentences. Jean McEwen devoted himself to poetry as much as he did to painting. The poet and essayist Louise Warren, whose exhibition we will present at the MAJ this summer, is imbued with visual arts. Monique Régimbald-Zeiber's work, currently quarantined at the MAJ, combines literature and painting by treating words as though they were images, and by approaching pictorial composition as syntax.
For the fourth week of Quarantined Museum, we invite you to create while reflecting on the close relationship between art and literature. Let art and literature become one in order to express an idea or a feeling that would not otherwise be expressed with as much force and clarity.
