What Are Words Worth? performance event

4 – 5.30pm

Northumbria University

A performance event bringing together a selection of artists who, through verbal performance, challenge the position of text and language within the gallery space as instrumentally interpretative.

Instead, the artists linger on histories and methods with language that encompass more expansive work; such as enacting friendship, mourning and resistance, ambiguity, sensuality, and song.

Convened by Corin Sworn, with contributions from Jude Browning & Corin Sworn, Sophie Seita and Nina Wakeford. Followed by the exhibition preview for What Are Words Worth? at Gallery North.
