Brazilian artist Antonio Claudio Carvalho’s work references cultural icons as a deliberate homage and personal vision of modern culture. His large painting, L. Ferlinghetti’s pictures of a gone world, is an ode to the past; a Chinese worker salutes Allen Ginsberg’s Howl, alongside Carvalho’s favourite books from the City Lights Pocket Poets Series.
Part of a dedicated season of artists’ books curated by KALEID editions, in which 12 internationally acclaimed artists engage with the Saison Poetry Library’s collection in a diverse programme of exhibitions, interventions, residencies and participatory events.
