salon de textes


An Arts Council funded programme of text-based art in a domestic setting, curated by Delpha Hudson & Cornwall Autonomous Zone. The Salon was set up as a researched-based, discursive event that explored a whole range of text-based art practices. Each event was presented as an ‘edition’.
