WORD AND IMAGE
The Second Modernist Network Cymru Conference
The Drwm, National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth
The School of Art, Aberystwyth University
12 – 13 September 2017

This interdisciplinary, two-day conference will bring together academics, artists, writers and curators to interrogate the symbiotic relationship between the visual arts and the written word in all forms of modernist expression. How did modernist artists respond to literary texts? How did writers incorporate visual elements in poetry and prose? How did author and artist collaborations arise? And how did modernist texts, from collages to magazines to scrapbooks, combine word and image in radical new ways?

We are delighted to welcome a fascinating range of speakers to our second conference, to be held jointly at the National Library of Wales and the School of Art, Aberystwyth.
