About Artefacts: 

In January 2017, O Mayeux wrote a computer program to dismantle all the poetry he has ever written, to tear it apart at its seams, to stitch its syntax into itself. What remains are these Artefacts, a cycle of asemic poetry. The abstract erotic narrative threaded through these poems is a delicate lament for the fragility of semantics, a tale of how we all remain unreadable to each other.

O Mayeux (http://4f4d.xyz/) is an artist and linguist from the UK. Artefacts is his first book.

"Mayeux here takes the bits and pieces, the scraps and refuse of language, the smallest particles, and re-knits them into a unspeakable song, Language clamors and yawps, mutters and sighs a new poetry, a choir of difference, a harmony of letterforms.” — derek beaulieu

'Through disappointment comes clarity. From clarity comes conviction. And thus, from conviction, arises opacity, again, inescapable, overlapping, murky. This beautiful work, Artefacts, is a testament to life, through poetry, the way it actually is. Broken, eclipsing itself, beautiful, made of older pieces, physical, disfigured. Showing there can be no real clarity in language art, just a pristine fracture.'
  — SJ Fowler

Artefacts by O Mayeux is now available at Amazon USA, UK, Canada, Australia, India, Mexico, & Europe (Germany, France, Italy, Spain).

José Parlá: No Space / Non Place - January 30, 2018 Reception @ NEU SPACE | 42



José Parlá: No Space / Non Place - January 30, 2018 Reception @ NEU SPACE | 42

The Neuberger Museum of Art is delighted to present José Parlá: No Space / Non Place, a newly commissioned public project for NEU SPACE | 42. Parlá is known for his paintings and sculptural works that examine the concept of place. Using the backdrop of world cities, the work explores the accumulated history of urban environments, capturing the essence of a place at the brief moment between past and future. In this group of new paintings Parlá abandons the concept of a specific place to explore a generic urbanism reflecting the turbulence of political situations around the world.
 

José Parlá: No Space / Non Place is organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, SUNY, and curated by Avis Larson, Assistant Curator. Generous support for this project is provided by the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and by the Purchase College Foundation.
