  • An international exhibition of contemporary art informed by modes of writing.

The Exhibition

The exhibition extratextual explores ways in which modes of writing, as well as concepts of textuality and narrative have informed artistic production. The exhibition will include contemporary and historical projects by artists and writers across disciplines. It looks at ways in which texts have both informed and created their own cosmologies, event-scales and terms of engagement, and how they shape our understanding of contemporary narrative as well as visual and spatial culture.
