In the Viewing Room:
Off the Books Featuring works by Alex Degen, Eric Fertman, Justin Valdes, Anton Vojacek, Yuri Masnyj. Curated by Benjamin Degen.
"Off the Books" presents artists drawing in text-space. Using the vocabulary of typography, symbols, books, signs, newspapers, runes and digital space, these artists are engaged in an ongoing dialog about the changing nature of text and its place in art-making today. Text is presented as a bridge between the physical world and the metaphysical world; between narrative representational space and non-narrative abstraction.
