CONTEXTUAL INFO

This exhibition was created in response to a call for joint curatorial ventures at John Mills National by Virginia and Adam. Hiram invited me to collaborate and I suggested using the idea of “Belles Lettres”. This was in reference to the literary stylism of the 18th century when letters were written for publication and where style in fine literature was as important as content. I was thinking of that period since “eyeline magazine” had just started in 1987 and we were short of writers in Brisbane. Hiram liked the idea because of the “style” issue (design as art) and also we wanted to explore the possibility of using letters as an art-form which doesn’t happen very often.
