The Racine Art Museum in Wisconsin is currently featuring an exhibit entitled “Creator and Character: Artists Interpret James Joyce.” The exhibit runs through early February and features the work of several artists whose work is in some way influenced by or about Joyce or Joyce’s writing. Artists in the exhibit include Peter Blake, Gisele Freund, Richard Hamilton, David Levine, Robert Motherwell, and Paul Wunderlich. The different works vary in content and medium, but feature portraits, photographs, and cartoons of Joyce, as well as the 1988 limited edition letterpress version of Ulysses featuring 40 of Motherwell’s prints. The work in the exhibit spans several decades and much of it has been produced as the artists’ interaction with Joyce’s work has developed. For more information about the individual exhibits and artists visit the Museum’s webpage.
