Next Thursday the exhibition Margaret Seaworthy Gothic will open at the Margaret Lawrence Gallery at the Victorian College of the Arts. The title, according to curator Matthew Shannon, is a form of homage to the venerable conceptual/textual artist Lawrence Weiner‘s need to invent his own unique font – called Margaret Seaworthy Gothic – so that his art would never be confused with mere communication. The exhibition will comprise works by Colin Duncan, Andrew Liversidge, Dane Mitchell, Matthew Shannon, and yes your iconophile. Yes indeed. The author of this drawing, Oslo Davis, is clearly on the case. Next week I’ll bring you installation pix plus Shannon’s exegesis.
