About the exhibition

The Expanded Librarian exhibition is the result of a series of collaborative artists’ workshops investigating different approaches to what the figure of the Expanded Librarian can be, and to add to the existing discourses of text & image – theoretically, methodologically and as artistic strategy.

Groups within the workshop have taken a different thread to follow:

  • Text+Image Migrations: translation, transcription, transformation
  • Text+Image Remediations: intermediality, reproduction, intertextuality
  • Text+Image Interpretations: (creative) mis-recognitions & mis-identifications
  • Text+Image Automations: constructed & generated content

The ideas around the exhibition fit with CRASSH’s mission of interdisciplinary approaches, because it has not only brought visual artists and writers together in collaborative thought processes but also integrated aspects from digital humanities, generative computing, visual poetry, translation as a creative strategy, reenactment as participative writing, choreography…

Individual works

What you see in the exhibition are the initial ideas and works in progress made as part of this research. We invite you to consider methods used to create text and image relations in the works presented, as well as the relationship between these methods and the theoretical framework under which they were made.

Featuring a diverse group of artists, this exhibition is a captivating encounter with the evolving concept of the Expanded Librarian. Join us in this exploration of interdisciplinary approaches that redefine the boundaries between text and image.
