From Visual to Textual

From Visual to Textual: Typography in/as Conceptual Art
This talk explores the shift from ‘looking’ to ‘reading’ in the text-based art practices of the 1960s and 70s as demonstrated in the works of Vito Acconci, Lawrence Weiner, Joseph Kosuth, Robert Smithson, Dan Graham and more. Focusing on the operation of typography and how this particular design element helps to move the works in question from a state of self-referentiality to an active engagement with the spectator, the talk will explore how the ideas of authorship and originality are challenged by situating the artworks in dynamic and interactive contexts, such as advertising and magazine publishing.
