APHA, BETA, CARTA An exhibition of words in maps
7th March – 11th May 2014
Parc culturel de Rentilly, 1 Rue l'Étang - 77600 Bussy-Saint-Martin, Paris
The exhibition alpha, beta, carta, has a thirty artists offering variations on words in maps.
Some have created a work for the occasion whilst others obeyed this constraint without knowing it.
Texts form a map, letters distort or encompass areas, paint erases places, and words become more pixels...
All maps are talking. As essential as the soundtrack of a movie, their expression deserves to be rediscovered.
Curated by Guillaume Monsaingeon and designed by Oucarpo
WALK ON 40 years of Art Walking
8th February – 31st March 2014
MAC Birmingham, Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham, B12 9QH
Steeped in the tradition of landscape art, walking has been at the heart of many art practices and performances for decades now.
This exhibition, focusing on artists’ walks and journeys both literal or metaphorical, is the first to examine the astonishingly varied ways
in which artists since the late 1960s have used what would seem like a universal act – of taking a walk – as a means to create new types of art.
An Art Circuit Touring Exhibition, supported by ACE and LEADER.
