Little Black Books: Address Books from the Archives of American Art

This exhibition showcases a selection of personal address books of influential American artists, from Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner to Joseph Cornell and Ad Reinhardt. Like diaries, these pocket-sized books, their dog-eared pages grimy with tangled ink and pencil marks, reveal much about their owners, creating a rich paper trail of relationships while tracking the journeys of family and friends.

Art Exhibition previously on at Smithsonian in District of Columbia, United States.
From Friday 07 August 2015 to Sunday 01 November 2015
