'Words to be Looked At' is an exhibition in display cases across Wolfson, featuring text-based artworks by students and alumni of the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, an art school with a world-leading reputation. The display celebrates the ways in which young artists are turning to text within their artistic work. Diverse approaches include artist books, poetry, code, performative writing, print and creative investigations of the material properties of books, and includes work by noted artists Matt Copson, Alvaro Barrington and Siobhan Coen. The exhibition presents a diverse and international approach to questions of language, memory, silence, translation, untranslatability and the act of speaking. Visitors can obtain a list of works and map from the Lodge. All works in the Library Breakout area can be handled and read.

Curator: Carey Young, Wolfson Creative Arts Fellow. Special thanks to Fiona Wilkes, Librarian.
