In Conversation: Text + Space: Speaking to Your Audience
Thursday, May 20, 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Join AGW for their fourth conversation – Text + Space: Speaking to Your Audience – with curators Ray Cronin and Lucas Cabral, and artists Amos Paul Kennedy Jr., Luke Maddaford, Jude Abu Zaineh, and Marc Ngui. These four artists demonstrate that what we say is informed by the way we choose to say it. Text + Space: Speaking to Your Audience is a theme that looks to the conversations being held by four artists who strategically bind text to physical spaces, and the phrases and translations that become objects in their own right. Through forms such as the posters of Amos Paul Kennedy Jr., the text installations of Luke Maddaford, the neon ‘signs’ of Jude Abu Zaineh, and the deconstructed book-form of March Ngui’s drawings, texts become things and conversation materializes.
