Vanessa Murrell from DATEAGLE ART hosted ‘Parallels / Encounters Part I’, two part symposium on the parallel of art and words in contemporary visual art practices and how they come together in forms of publication. The lunchtime speedshow included short presentations from Synesthesia I & II writers and artists and was facilitated by House of Prints and UNIT3. Melanie Stidolph shared excerpts from her first photobook, ‘Endless Reproduction,’. Lizzie Lloyd discussed the value of in-progress conversations between artists and writers, and why we should all be doing this more often. Bridgette Ashton presented ideas about connecting and finding common ground in an effort to make sense of information. Delpha Hudson performed a wordless performance about language and visuals.
