Word Play

A group exhibition of text-based works

An exhibition exploring the exploitation of the meanings and ambiguities of words. 

Language and Art have never lived too far away from one another and have often collided or intersected, producing thought-provoking and influential artworks. 

This exhibition investigates the more playful side of language, drawing upon ‘words’ in the broadest possible sense; with artworks that take inspiration from popular culture to work that embraces the charm of etymology. It offers a glimpse into how artists manipulate text, adapting it to generate new narratives and repurposing it to take on new forms…
