An exhibition in the Benson Gallery of the English Faculty library, curated by Redell Olsen - Judith E. Wilson Poetry Fellow of Homerton College, highlights traditions in visual poetics from David Jones and Eugene Gomringer to more recent work by contemporary practitioners such as Vanessa Place and Susan Johanknecht. It features books, pamphlets and objects from both the English Faculty library and from private collections. The display highlights the innovative possibilities and varied approaches to writing that can occur at the intersections between poetry and the visual arts.
