Paint Spilling

Posted on April 3, 2013


So, it seems that Poetry&Paint has found itself within a trend in the arts world. Whilst preparing for the launch of the anthology, the Poetry Library were also exhibiting work combining poetry and the visual arts, and an event called ‘Poetry meets Art’ took place in Hackney Wick.

I have since noticed that a new anthology of poetry and text-based art is being launched next week at Whitechapel Gallery, where the image above is taken from. I love words on a page, but it is great to explore those words with collaboration, whether that’s with the visual arts or letting the public to hear the words aloud at live literature events. Go and explore time, mortality and traces in the natural world.

It is exciting to see the concept of Poetry&Paint elsewhere, and we support anyone that shares this vision.
