"Writing Art illustrates how the use of text has evolved into an integral and multifaceted aspect of contemporary art. The use of text may be fundamentally material, focusing on the resonant connotations of words. It may be punning and self-referential. It may be spatial and constructive. It may draw close to poetry while maintaining a strong visual identity. It may be documentarian, or mockingly so, where text is suggested as part of a narrative, or fictional, archive. Ultimately, it is the sheer mutability of the textual within the context of the visual arts that allows it to keep speaking, amongst works and to an ever-growing audience receptive to the form." Opening Thursday 25/06/15, 6-8pm. Exhibition continues until 16/07/15.
