Leigh Davis’s flags mark an important intervention in the unfurling story of poetry. These context-infused, resonant works, bring the practice of site-specific and visual poetry around several corners and into another, ‘new-old’ dimension. The catalog, with its processural design and informative, thought-filled, essays, provides geographic, conceptual, political, ethical, and historical extensions to the work that flutters at the heart of this breathtaking, and breath-restoring, project.

Charles Bernstein, 1998
