Daily Serving » New Work: R.H. Quaytman at SFMOMA

In the 1950s, San Francisco poet Jack Spicer wrote that he considered a collection of poems to be a community meant to "echo and re-echo against each other." A quick look at R.H. Quaytman's new installation, I Love -- The Eyelid Clicks / I See / Cold Poetry, Chapter 18, created just for SFMOMA, assures us that the analogy holds for a collection of paintings, too. Perhaps this is the reason that Quaytman and curator Apsara diQuinzio settled on Spicer as a guidepost for the exhibition.
