WORD AND IMAGE

The Second Modernist Network Cymru Conference

The Drwm, National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth

The School of Art, Aberystwyth University

12 - 13 September 2017

This interdisciplinary, two-day conference will bring together academics, artists, writers and curators to interrogate the symbiotic relationship between the visual arts and the written word in all forms of modernist expression. How did modernist artists respond to literary texts? How did writers incorporate visual elements in poetry and prose? How did author and artist collaborations arise? And how did modernist texts, from collages to magazines to scrapbooks, combine word and image in radical new ways?

We are delighted to welcome a fascinating range of speakers to our second conference, to be held jointly at the National Library of Wales and the School of Art, Aberystwyth.

Travel information

The conference is being held over two locations: National Library of Wales https://www.llgc.org.uk/en/visit/before-your-visit/how-to-get-to-nlw/ and Aberystwyth University’s School of Art located in the Edward Davies building https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/maps-travel/maps/#buildings/edward-davies.
