More Than Meets the Eye
The University of Essex Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition exploring the everyday interventions of contemporary word-art, curated by MA Gallery Studies students.
Words function in our culture as vehicles of communication. Everyone uses words in some form everyday but we tend to take them for granted.
We are not always aware how incredibly persuasive they can be. Words install powerful emotions in a person and provoke varied reactions, mental and physical, from subtle to very violent.
The method of delivery of these words often contributes to their power. This exhibition will explore how a subtle expression or act of communication can often wield more power than the loudest of cries.
The exhibition will include works by the following artists Laurie Anderson, Charlotte Bernstein, Douglas Gordon, Jenny Holzer, Mark Hutchinson and David Shrigley. In addition there will be works personally installed around the University campus by Fiona Macalister and Tomas Vanek.
