"Text and the City"

The objective for this artSPEAK is to initiate a dialogue with artists on text and the city as a discourse, trying to understand the role of text in art. The intersection between visualizing versus writing about a subject and where the two meet. How text informs art and the relationship between word and image.

About ArtSPEAK
