The exhibition entitled “The Palace of Concrete Poetry” presents an intergenerational dialogue between artists who are closely or more loosely related to the notion of concrete poetry.
The exhibition brings together both the pioneers of concrete poetry and their followers including the youngest generation, moving the issue forward to (post)digital ways of working and the realm of visual poetry. The works on display, with a few exceptions, were created specifically for the exhibition and are situated in the Art Nouveau interior of the Writers’ House of Georgia in Tbilisi, one of the architectural gems of the city.
The project is organized in collaboration with Writers’ House of Georgia and E. A. Shared Space. The exhibition is part of the official accompanying program of the Tbilisi International Festival of Literature (9–11 September 2022) and the Tbilisi Art Fair (22–25 September 2022).
