Barry Nemett’s paintings reflect a busy mind, constantly feeling around for ideas, images, words and other voices, then piecing them back together like grand puzzles, bursting with information. The longtime professor and Chair of MICA’s Painting Department, Nemett is also a published writer and poet, and collaborated for years with Richard Kalter, MICA’s dearly missed philosopher/ poet/ theologian in residence. The spirit of that collaboration hovers over this exhibition, which celebrates the release of Nemett’s full-length retrospective catalog, and draws together work exploring the dynamic interplay between painting and poetry.

On Sep 25, they screen The Instrument, by Nemett’s son Adam, starring Richard Kalter, and with sets by Nemett and his students. On Oct 8 Nemett welcomes MICA colleagues to read poems by Kalter and others and consider the centuries-old dance between painting and poetry.
