Taking place at both Gairloch Gardens & Centennial Square, the Down To Write You This Poem exhibition will run everyday of the month from June 28th to September 3rd.

Art and poetry share a long and rich history, from the visual poetry experiments of the modernist avant-garde to the association of the Beat Generation with artists like Andy Warhol. Today, this conversation continues, with practitioners borrowing freely from one another and often active in both areas. One of the defining features of this intersection has been the way language has increasingly loosened itself from the printed page and responded to new technological developments. In Down To Write You This Poem this shift is explored, with artists and poets readily making use of new media while drawing on the language and techniques of mass culture through film, writing, performance, and installation.
