Remember a few months back I visited Vicki Sher’s studio? Yes/No, her thought provoking solo show at Frosch & Portmann (LES, New York), will be up through April 15, 2012. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings, and audio tapes that explore her grandmother’s loss of language. As she aged, Sher’s grandmother lost all her words except “yes” and “no,” but she communicated effectively nonetheless. On April 13, at 6 pm, Catherine Barnett and Michael Morse will be presenting poetry they produced in response to Sher’s work. According to the press release, the award winning poets will read together, alternately, echoing the rhythmic dialogue of the exhibition’s central audio piece.
