Let’s Talk About Text
This exhibition presents works from the Artbank collection that harness text-based communication as a pictorial device. From sloganeering statements to vernacular fragments and found fonts, this exhibition focuses on how artists respond to and encourage the visual pleasure of inventive typographic forms for personal and political ends. Let’s Talk About Text reflects on how we look at reading and read the act of looking, and all the good things and the bad things that may be.
Artists: Angela Cavalieri, Sarah Contos, Lane Cormick, John Demos, Peter Dudding, Emily Floyd, Newell Harry, Thomas Jeppe, Alice Lang, Clinton Nain, Nasim Nasr, Rose Nolan, Anthony Johnson, and Eugenia Raskopoulos.
Curated by Daniel Mudie Cunningham and Miriam Kelly.
