    Jim Kempner and just another night with The Madness of Art

    A penny for your thoughts and a dime for your every word as they say. Last February 12th, there was lots to say at the group exhibition, If These Walls Could Talk, which featured artists that use text as the main component of self -expression. The show includes a selection of prints, photographs, sculpture. and neon work from these roster of artists: Robert Attanasio, Mel Bochner, Louise Bourgeois, Dan Colen, Tracy Emin, Rinaldo Frattolillo, Robert Gober, Jim Kempner, John Grande, Deborah Kass, Barbara Kruger, Lisa Levy, Sol LeWitt, Joe Nanashe, Bruce Nauman, Robert Rauschenberg, Nora Ligorano, Marshall Reese, Ed Ruscha, Alyson Shotz, Andy Warhol, and others. The collective clearly illustrated the potent power, imagery, and ubiquitous usage of words as vehicles to present, confront, comment, and ruminate on art ideals. Words do mean something but as anything in art, its definition can be one singular thing or infinite possibilities of what it truly means.
