The poem, the story, the poster, the literary artwork as Note. Note as in draft, as in graphic symbol, as in discovered text. Note as in reminder, forgotten, perhaps scrawled, handwritten, typed or digital. Note on a phone, in a notebook, on a bus. The notebook as the poem, the word doc draft as the final story, because the author intervened. An exhibition that celebrates the process over the product, that takes pleasure, and pain, in the inevitable unfinished, in that which points to a future finality that’ll never come.
Following hugely successful, joyous and communal exhibitions in 2017, 2018 and 2019, this opening performance event saw exhibitors presenting short live works on the theme.
