In this webinar artist Sebastian Moody will use their own practice as a case study to discuss how text and language are used in contemporary visual art.

The participant will: 

  • Learn the historical origins and evolution of text in the visual arts from concrete poetry and conceptual art to more contemporary applications.
  • Understand the important role context plays in shaping the reception and interpretation of text-based artworks.
  • Focus on public text art and its potential for creating social, political, humourous, and poetic works in this context.
