Futurecity are curating the Gallery at Foyles. The gallery will feature six major collaborative projects annually, each inspired by the printed, performed and written word. Each exhibition is based on the premise that words are not normally uttered, written or printed with the intention that they should end up in a glass case. We intend to unlock the ideas, images, critical discourse, opinion, record and wonder permeating through the books and music contained within the store. Our exhibitions will offer artists an opportunity to excavate the multiple permutations of the written word, from the printed broadside to performative interpretations; from the artists manifesto to the conceptual artwork. For exhibition dates, please see the Gallery at Foyles section of our website.
This gallery of the word is the first of its kind in London, promising exciting conversations & collaborations between artists, writers & other creative disciplines.
