salon de textes

A salon event based in Chapel Street, Penzance, curated with Rebecca Weeks and Ian Whitford of CAZ  (supported by ALIAS’ series Artists’ Hubs across Cornwall). The Salon is set up as a researched-based, discursive event that explores a whole range of text-based art practices.  Instigating informal discussions about art, life, work, and text. Each event is presented as an ‘edition’.
