This is the first exhibition within an Argentinian museum by the artist Mirtha Dermisache (Buenos Aires, 1940-2012). The show features works from her first book produced in 1967 to her final pieces produced in the 2000s. D
Dermisache production deals with visual art and writing: her calligraphic method is applied to books, letters, texts, diaries, postcards, and other formats as it experiments with the expressive potential of the line rendered by hand on paper.
The exhibition combines publishing devices and their manipulations with original works to interrogate the most abstract facets of writing, like the question of time, musicality and rhythm, the visual nature of handwriting, the search for meaning, writing as system, and the relationship between handwriting and typography.
