“The Language of Art” is an exhibition that focuses on the dynamic relationship between text and image and highlighting the interplay between language and subjectivity. The exhibit showcase a diverse selection of emerging artists who are inspired from conceptual artists who were known for their contributions to text based art in the 1960’s. The five artists on display are Samuel Jablon, Edgar Heap of Birds, Eric Stefanski, Joel Mesler and Kenny Schachter. These artists utilize text as a key element in their art, aiming to illustrate the power of words, symbols, and ideas to form visual experiences that exceed traditional artistic boundaries. Their work deals with a wide range of themes, and addresses issues related to colonization, racism, environmental issues, social commentary, humor and irony. Their work helps us finding new possibilities of creativity and engages us in a more logical and thought-provoking way
