artists investigating language
July 1 to Aug 20, 2010
James Harris Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition entitled TXT. Each artist uses language to reflect on social, political, personal or experiential content. The works not only question speech filtered through semantics but also the graphics of popular media. They tread on both verbal and visual territory resonating on many different levels. Each artist’s work conflates the meaning of written messages by questioning the power and believability of words.
Artists included in the exhibition: Brad Adkins, Ray Beldner, Matthew Buckingham, Alejandro Cesarco, Steve Davis, Davis + Langlois, Anthony Discenza, Dana Frankfort, Lauren Grossman, Matthew Higgs, Jenny Holzer, Lawrence Lemaoana, Glenn Ligon, Tania Kitchell, Mark Mumford, Walter Robinson, Joel Ross, Brent Steen
