Confusion of Tongues, Art and the Limits of Language, Courtauld Commission

Confusion of Tongues: Art and the Limits of Language
MA Programme Curating the Art Museum, 16 June – 17 July 2016

It was an absolute pleasure to be commissioned by The Courtauld Gallery‘s MA Curating students to write poems in response to some of the works within their fantastic exhibition, Confusion of Tongues: Art and the Limits of Language last weekend.

The exhibition is still on for another week, so if you have a chance I’d highly recommend going.
