Also recognized for his thorough and thoughtful coverage of the artist Ad Reinhardt in the 2008 book by the same name, Corris’s most recent publication is a book he wrote with John Dixon Hunt and David Lomas on the use of language in art, Art, Word, and Image: 2000 Years of Visual/Textual Interaction, published in 2010. Each author contributed their take on the topic of art, word, and image in individual essays.

Ben Jones is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York whose tantalizing work is featured in the Modern’s third FOCUS exhibition of the season. Jones, a member of the East Coast Art Collective, Paper Rad, has received recognition with an impressive exhibition, performance, and publication record for what is described in the press release for his solo exhibition The New Dark Age at Deitch Projects in New York as, “between-media video sculpture, light painting, and ‘drawing in the digital age’” that “explores new methods of pictorial storytelling...” As with the work in The New Dark Age, Jones tends to blow the viewer away with an onslaught of imagery, pattern, and color that replicate and play with the visual bombardment of the contemporary world. As the Deitch Projects press release aptly explains, “To the naked eye, The New Dark Age might be a blinding glimpse at the darkly comic heart of the ‘Internet generation gone wild.’” This Tuesday Evening presentation offers a special preview of what Jones has in-store for the Modern’s audience with the Museum’s final FOCUS exhibition which opens to the public Sunday, April 11, 2009.
