Art + Text Exhibition 2017


Calling all creatives who love text, letters and words!

You are invited to enter Art + Text 2017, an exhibition celebrating text in art of all forms.

We encourage you to think beyond the wall and into the world for ways to express yourself through this truly engaging medium.

The relationship between art and text is rich and varied – from Rene Magritte to Jasper Johns, Jenny Holzer to Martin Creed – the decision to use text in art is a powerful and often (sometimes?) provocative choice.

For further inspiration we have found some digital letters to play with at LanguageIsAVirus and PostSecret

There are endless possibilities between a visual art practice and writing, text and words!

As one informs the other, keep your Playfulness and think outside the letter.

Curated by Kelly O’Brien and Sveta Antonova.

All media encouraged including video, performance, installation, prints, painting, books, new media and sculpture.
