Excuse Me: a Structural Device for Visual Communication

January  7 - February 26, 2022

"Excuse Me: a Structural Device for Visual Communication" is a collaborative exhibition from Danger Punch and FO(u)RT art collectives. Each week will showcase the work of an individual artist in response to a single poem by Dr. Jenna Goldsmith. This series of rapid exhibitions will highlight the similarities and differences of written word and visual art, informing each other while also pushing against each other.

 

About Danger Punch: 

Danger Punch is an interdisciplinary collective from Portland, Oregon. Simple ideas are taken and collectively developed, both in the conceptual and technical aspect, through a devoted practice rooted in the process of making. Projects are thematically temporal, and aim to create a byproduct of fearless art making.
