"How does language structure our world? Who gets to be inside or outside a language? What would it mean to invent a new mode of communication? And what social conditions make creating a new language necessary? Chicago artist Caroline Kent explores these questions through paintings, drawings, sculpture and performance works that speak in an abstract visual vocabulary she developed over years of practice." -- Press, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago
