John Ashbery: “New Collage” at Tibor de Nagy Gallery
The Tibor de Nagy Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new collages by John Ashbery who is considered to be one of the most important contemporary poets. This is Ashbery’s fifth gallery exhibition since his solo debut here in 2008.
Ashbery started making collages as an undergraduate at Harvard. His approach to poetry and collage is very much the same. In an Ashbery poem, the sentences and phrases accumulate into abstract “collages” that can’t easily be paraphrased or explained. The collages and poems both have surprising, and sometimes humorous juxtapositions and references to popular culture.
