DESCRIPTION

Pro-Text Art: When Words Enter Visual Art explores the combinative practices of artists who use language or text in their visual art. This exhibition showcases art that incorporates words, letters, or text, for narrative or graphic impact. The scope of the exhibition ranges from folk/ visionary art, to contemporary works in traditional media such as drawing, painting and sculpture, to experimental installation, mixed media and new media work. Works by emerging and mid-career artists are featured alongside select works drawn from the ISM Fine Art Collection. Exhibition is curated by Robert Sill, Assistant Director of Art, Illinois State Museum.
