> DESCRIPTION

BAC Gallery presents Clamoring to Become Visible, Curatorial Talk and Artist Panel

Clamoring to Become Visible (February 5 - June 26, 2009) examines how the written word interacts with and often replaces the normative notion of visual aesthetics within the gallery space. Often aesthetically subtle and intimate, the handwritten, embroidered, and collaged examples of text-based art selected for the exhibition represent fourteen contemporary artists’ attempts to explore everyday issues such as isolation, identity, spirituality, and communication. Carrying the fundamental commonality of language, the works revolve around an ideal of connectivity as it relates to artistic craft, self-inquiry, articulation and expression, and ultimately to our parallel human circumstance.
