In Company: Robert Creeley's Collaborations

R.B.Kitaj, For Love (Creeley),
1966, lithograph


May 22 – July 15, 2000

For over 40 years Robert Creeley has been working on collaborative projects with some of the most well-known and influential visual artists of our time including Georg Baselitz, Francesco Clemente, Jim Dine, Robert Indiana, Alex Katz, R.B. Kitaj, Marisol, Susan Rothenberg, and many others. In Company demonstrates profound connections and lasting influences between contemporary visual art and contemporary writing. The catalog, available through the USF CAM bookstore, features essays by John Yau and Hank Hine, and includes a CD-ROM containing archival photos, excerpts from letters and interviews with collaborating artists.

The exhibition was curated by Elisabeth Licata and travelled by the Castellani Art Museum of Niagra University, New York and the Weatherspoon Art Gallery, University of North Carolina at Greensborough. The exhibition and publications received support from the Lannan Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
