Just What Are They Saying 

A Text Based Show Curated by Ruth DeWoody

If you were to list the more enduring names that have helped define modern art over the past 20 or 30 years, you would almost certainly include Vito Acconci, Carl Andre, Jenny Holzer, Deborah Kass, Joseph Kosuth, Barbara Kruger, Bruce Nauman, Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha and William Wegman, to name a few. It's very rare to see all of them and others of similar stature together in the same exhibition, and doubly rare to encounter such a show outside New York, but all of the above and more appear in Just What Are They Saying at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery. Curator Ruth DeWoody says works like Kass' Daddy (pictured) explore the use of words in a way that inspires us to look beyond the way words are ordinarily used and come to a more poetic understanding of their deeper layers of meaning, perhaps even opening a dialogue with the viewer in which the work will speak for itself with its own unique voice. — D.
