The exhibition Call it something else: Something Else Press, Inc. (1963-1974) focuses on the books, projects, and activities of Dick Higgins’s publishing house Something Else Press. The publishing house was founded amid the “linguistic turn,” a crucial moment in the arts of the 1960s, when artists began using language and text as the material of their aesthetic propositions. The Something Else Press aimed from the start to seize and build upon the creative experiments by composers, dancers, authors, and artists of all kinds (many in Higgins’s circle) and to give their ephemeral work the necessary buttressing to carry it into the future.
