The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum presents Square Word Calligraphy Classroom by the internationally acclaimed Chinese artist Xu Bing.
Xu Bing has invented a method of writing English words in rectangular arrangements which resemble Chinese characters. This thought-provoking, interactive installation invites visitors to rediscover what it means to read and write. Desks with ink, brushes and copybooks are set out for gallery visitors and a video and instruction manual guide them in learning Square Word Calligraphy.
