Jun 13 - Jul 13, 2018
Curated by Chelsea College of Arts Librarian, Gustavo Grandal Montero, this exhibition reflects Montero's ongoing research into the evolution of concrete poetry and its influence on visual art in the period 1964-67 in Britain. Looking at the materialisation of language and the role of art schools with Chelsea in particular as places for experimentation and dissemination of ideas. By exploring the work of Edward Wright and Tom Edmonds the show will make connections between artists and graphic designers alongside students and staff, describing their multiple influences, including that of Concrete poetry, but also Constructivism, and later Conceptual art, minimalism and land art.
