In Verbis Artis (In Words Art), curated by John David O’Brien, explores the relationship between typography, design, and fine art through the work of Los Angeles-based artists. Within the context of each artist’s voice, the exhibition examines the fluidity of written words, addressing the myriad potential interpretations of language at this critical time for communication throughout contemporary culture. The work converges here to open a dialogue into the way we understand letterforms, and how artists can subvert them in the realization of their aesthetic vision.
Participating artists: Gajin Fujita, Alexandra Grant, Mark Steven Greenfield, Jason Manley, Rebecca Ripple, Steve Roden, Jody Zellen.
Exhibition runs February 22 through May 23 in the HMCT South Campus Gallery.
Public reception from 4-7 PM on Saturday, February 22.
