"Amazing!" A Conversation with Conceptual Artist Mel Bochner

Oct 22, 2018

On this edition of StudioTulsa, our guest is pioneering conceptual artist Mel Bochner. Since his groundbreaking 1966 work, "Working Drawings," which featured photocopied working drawings, bills, and ephemera of his artist friends, Bochner has explored painting and language, and asked viewers to think about both in new ways. He's best known for his thesaurus works, several of which are in the new exhibit at Philbrook, "Amazing! Mel Bochner Prints from the Collections of Jordan Schnitzer and His Family Foundation."

The exhibit features some of his most iconic works, including "Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah," "Ha Ha," "The Joys of Yiddish," and "I Don't Get It...I Still Don't Get It." The exhibition is on display through January 6, 2019.
