The Power of Incompleteness


The “Unfinished: Thoughts Left Visible” exhibition at the Met Breuer Gallery meant more than just incomplete art, writer Patricia Park shares at Catapult. Park was invited to speak at the exhibition’s launch, as were creatives from many different fields. The experience challenged her to think of the exhibition through the lens of her specific work, writing and editing:

As a writer who spent almost a decade tinkering with her first novel, Re Jane, and is now at work on her second, I could not help but view “Unfinished” through the lens of writing and editing. As they say, a manuscript is never actually finished; it’s wrestled out of the writer’s hands by her editor.
