Two Palms is pleased to announce the publication of Mel Bochner’s Language Is Not Transparent, a large-scale silkscreen in three parts. Since Bochner first scrawled the phrase in chalk on the wall at the Dwan Gallery in 1970 for the exhibition Language IV, its provocation has continued to resonate among artists and writers considering the place of language in the visual arts.
