You may recall our earlier posts about the release of Carl Jung’s Red book after years 95 years of cloistering. The book is an elaborately lettered and illustrated odyssey into C.G. Jung’s unconscious. A Los Angeles exhibit is the first public display of the book and UCLA’s Hammer Museum is only west coast venue for the exhibition.
In addition to the famed book, the exhibition will display several oil, chalk, and tempera paintings and preparatory sketches related to the Red Book, and other original manuscripts, including the Black Books, which contain ideas and fantasies leading up to the Red Book. The Red book will be on display through June 6, 2010.
