Please join Sarah Hulsey for a discussion about her current solo exhibition, “Diagraphia“. Hulsey will dive into the historical inspirations behind the Diagraphia and Phonetic Constellation projects, share her processes for turning texts into imagery, and explain why she uses printmaking to convey linguistic ideas.
From referencing medieval diagrams to represent syntactic analysis (left, “In the Words of Porphyry”), to arranging parts of English speech by frequency, mimicking the Periodic Table of Elements (right,“In the Words of Mendeleev”), you’ll definitely want to learn more about Hulsey’s layered manner of research and representation. There will be plenty of time for Q&A.
“Diagraphia” is a Gallery 263 Curatorial Proposal Series exhibition, and will be on view March 24-April 16, 2016.
