Allen Ruppersberg at the Rice Gallery.

Allen Ruppersberg will present an homage to Allen Ginsberg and his famous poem “Howl” on Thursday, 11 November 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Rice Gallery. The well-known 1956 poem has been translated into different phonetic spellings and then reintegrated into the original text. The “new” text is printed on approximately 200 multi-colored commercial advertising posters, which are shuffled together with a combination of found posters and arranged in the gallery to create a colorful, all-encompassing collage. If you like pop art, you should definitely check it out.
