About

ARTISTS:
Betty Tompkins, Chad Kouri, D*face, Ed Ruscha, Guerrilla Girls, Jenny Holzer, Nathaniel Russell, Ramsey Dau, Scott Albrecht, Shepard Fairey, Umar Rashid and Wayne White.

Curated in collaboration between Subliminal Projects in East Los Angeles, and newly established FACTION Art Projects in Harlem, New York City, Visual Language is a bi-coastal group exhibition investigating various approaches to the use of words and images in art and Western Culture.

Visual Language examines the integration of word and image into art, bringing together a broad spectrum of alter- native strategies for expressing contemporary everyday experiences.

The exhibition will run simultaneously at Subliminal Projects and FACTION Art Projects.The tone of the works gathered in Visual Language reflects each artist’s diversity, ranging from political, ironic, poetic, typographic, and abstract. In each gallery the artworks will work in parallel or collaboratively, while others will juxtapose and subvert, offering a strong critical frame through which to view contemporary culture in this period of “fake news” and “alternative facts.”
