Product Description

Tony Lewis: Anthology 2014–2016 is the debut volume in a new series of publications by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden––the national museum of modern and contemporary art—that focuses upon significant works in the Museum collection. The book showcases thirty-four trailblazing collage-poems by the artist Tony Lewis. Drawing together the energy and hilarity of comic strips—especially the legendary Calvin and Hobbes—with a profound poetic sensibility, Lewis plays with line and language to create works that teach us about the magic of drawing just as they demonstrate a new way to understand poetry. Accompanying essays and drawings by scholars and artists Theaster Gates, Betsy Johnson, and Karl Haendel reveal how Lewis is creating a unique place for himself within contemporary art.
