Charles Wilkin

Exhibition in New York
Posted by Gestalten—01/2013

Born Again, the upcoming show at Calico gallery in Brooklyn, features work by Thomas Buildmore, Allison Maletz, and Charles Wilkin. Each artist takes something from the past - a concept, an image, a sound - and recontextualizes or recreates it to be experienced in a new light, from a different angle than originally intended. This subtle theme of rebirth comes appropriately timed for our post-Mayan-Apocalypse existence. You’re invited to the opening reception on Friday, February 8, 7-9 pm. 

Charles Wilkin, of Automatic Art and Design, is one of America’s most noted exponents of modern deconstructive typography, juxtaposing multi-layered images with type reminiscent of David Carson. The release of his monograph Index A, published by Gestalten, will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year. More work by Wilkin is featured in Los Logos 6 and Tres Logos.
