this is the book I have written for you
A text-themed group show
Park Life Gallery, San Francisco
June 11, 2010 through July 18, 2010
Opening Reception Friday, June 11th 2010. 7 – 10 pm.
This exhibition will showcase work by emerging and established artists who deal with semiotics and whose use of type and language is a reoccurring part of their artistic vernacular. The work in this exhibition will both conceptually driven, purely abstract, or may use type expressionistically.
The artists were selected for their ability in uniting blunt technology with a straightforward and user friendly interface. In this way the show aspires to exhibit work that is very accessible, despite its potential to be either easily digestible or cryptic. The ultimate goal is to bring together a set of contemporary artists, designers, illustrators, and writers and examine how their various approaches contribute to the current state of language art.
