Question and Exclamation
Thursday March 3, 1983 – Wednesday March 30, 1983
Leonid Sokov’s exhibition ? and !, or Question and Exclamation, was developed around the notion that these two punctuation marks constitute the two poles in a process that defines creative human behavior. Together, according to the artist, they established the capacity and the will of the human thought process to question or exclaim upon an issue. Leonid Sokov, an artist of Russian origin, identified these two symbols as fundamental reference points in the creative tradition of his people, and after emigrating to America embarked upon a reexamination of this tradition. The exhibition was centered around two large sculptures in the form of a question mark and an exclamation mark, and from these two pieces radiated others, completely occupying Storefront’s exhibition space.
