The Art of Lost Words is group exhibition of design, typography and illustration inspired by forgotten words. 45 participants have chosen from a list of the dictionary’s languishing words, with an open brief to create a work inspired by their choice. The exhibition is curated by text/gallery, a ‘roaming’ gallery concept producing visual arts events inspired by the printed and written word.
There’s a great line up including Alan Kitching, Jonathan Ellery, Marion Deuchars, David Quay Leah Fusco, Kate Gibb, Sam Winston and No Days Off (pictured).
‘‘The Art of Lost Words’ is running from 5 — 9 of March at the German Gymnasium, Pancras Rd London NW1 2TB. Proceeds from the sale go towards the National Literacy Trust.
