As a featured artist in our current exhibition, Drawing Time, Reading Time, Guy de Cointet (1934-1983) utilized letters, numbers, and symbols in his drawings to create a lexicon that activates and thwarts linguistic sense. The drawings are often employed as integral props in the artist’s performances, such as the ones found in the 2008 performances of Going to the Market, 1975 and Two Drawings, 1974.
