Xu Bing: Book from the Sky

Blanton Museum of Art

June 19 - January 22, 2017

An exhibition of the installation Book from the Sky by Chinese artist Xu Bing. "The installation will transform 1,500 square feet of the museum’s galleries into an immersive temple-like space filled with printed text. Displayed in the form of books, hanging scrolls, and wall panels, the enveloping words invite reading and appear to promise meaning, yet these texts cannot be read—not even by Xu himself—as they are composed of some 4,000 pseudo-Chinese characters invented by the artist. Each character appears plausible, when in fact it carries no meaning, rendering all readers illiterate."
