Continues at HOME until 30 August
Poet Slash Artist is an exploration of poets who work with visual art and visual artists who work with poetry. Throughout the history of art and literature today there are more words and images passing between us than ever.
Poet Slash Artist is an expansive exhibition of cultures, continents, languages and generations, blurring the lines of received opinion. The streets of Manchester will become the art gallery featuring specially commissioned new work (check back in June for locations and a map) and the heart of the exhibition will be at HOME because home is where the art is.
There’ll also be a day of spoken word and music at Homeground, HOME’s summer-long open-air stage, and a film season at HOME featuring artists whose work overlaps the worlds of poetry and visual art. Details of both will be announced in the coming weeks.
Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival and HOME.
