Literally and Figuratively
Text and image in South African art

10 December 2003 - 24 January 2004
A group exhibition of artists who seamlessly integrate texts and images in their work. There are many historical precedents, including Chinese calligraphy and Egyptian art, where the script itself is viewed as an art form. In the contemporary idiom, there are many artists who use both text and image to explore symbolism and convey narratives.
