Visual Language – Faction art projects

Shepard Fairey Beyond the Streets Billboard 2018

Curated in collaboration between newly established FACTION Art Projects in Harlem, New York City and Subliminal Projects in East Los Angeles. Visual Language is a bi-coastal group exhibition investigating various approaches to the use of words and images in art and Western Culture.

Visual Language examines the integration of word and image into art, bringing together a broad spectrum of alternative strategies for expressing contemporary everyday experiences.

The exhibition will run simultaneously at Subliminal Projects and FACTION Art Projects. The tone of the works gathered in Visual Language reflects each artist’s diversity, ranging from political, ironic, poetic, typographic, and abstract. In each gallery the artworks will work in parallel or collaboratively, while others will juxtapose and subvert, offering a strong critical frame through which to view contemporary culture in this period of “fake news” and “alternative facts.”
