Poetry by Design

Explore visual and concrete poetry through magazines and art objects.

Examine creativity and visual poetics through items from Special Collections and private lenders. Concrete poetry is a visual art form which places as much importance on the placement of words as on the meaning of the text.

Discover works from the post-Second World War, pre-computer period up until the present. On display is work from Ian Hamilton Finlay and Bob Cobbing. Also featured is Kimberly Campanello.

This display is guest-curated by Professor Fiona Becket and Dr Emma Trott (School of English)
