EXHIBITION TITLE: POET SLASH ARTIST
EXHIBITION DATE: JULY 2, 2021 TO AUGUST 30, 2021
EXHIBITION LOCATION: HOME, MANCHESTER, UK
Poet Slash Artist is an exploration of poets who work with visual art and visual artists who work with poetry. Throughout the history of art and literature today there are more words and images passing between us than ever.
Poet Slash Artist is an expansive exhibition of cultures, continents, languages and generations, blurring the lines of received opinion. The streets of Manchester will become the art gallery featuring specially commissioned new work (check back in June for locations and a map) and the heart of the exhibition will be at HOME because home is where the art is.
