language art anthology

World-leading text artists and poets are brought together for the first time in this groundbreaking international anthology. Over 100 contributors include Richard Long, Tacita Dean, Shirin Neshat, Tony Lopez, Fiona Banner, Ron Silliman, Erica Baum, Nja Mahdaoui, Simon Patterson, Richard Wentworth, Jenny Holzer, Sarah Sanders, Holly Pester, Nick Blinko, Caroline Bergvall, Tsang Kin Wah, Lawrence Weiner, Rosmarie Waldrop and many more. The book is a gathering of people who use language as their primary material of making, be they artist or poet. It is in two volumes, one paper (300 pages) and the other virtual (1000 plus pages) - contributors have submitted work that meditates on dis/embodiment and the human trace. The anthology is edited by visual poet Philip Davenport, who curated the first posthumous gallery exhibitions of Ian Hamilton Finlay and Bob Cobbing and has helped to curate the UK Text Festival.
