In Verbis Artis
In Verbis Artis — In Words Art
Curated by John David O'Brien, In Verbis Artis explores the relationship between typography, design, and fine art through the work of Los Angeles-based artists Gajin Fujita, Alexandra Grant, Mark Steven Greenfield, Jason Manley, Rebecca Ripple, Steve Roden, and Jody Zellen.
Within the context of each artist’s voice, the exhibition—and this associated publication—examines the fluidity of written words, addressing the myriad potential interpretations of language during a critical time for communication throughout contemporary culture.
The presented works converge, opening a dialogue into the way letterforms are understood, and how artists can subvert them in the realization of their aesthetic vision.
