Discover poems designed to be seen, not just read, as artist Alex Selenitsch reflects on the concrete poetry on display in the World of the book exhibition. Selenitsch, who has been experimenting with this international art form since it reached Australia in the 1960s, will be joined by curator Linda Short to discuss concrete poetry’s beginnings as typewritten words on a page, through to the diverse methods used today that combine printmaking, collage, sculpture and more.
