Feature: Exhibition - Critical Dictionary from January 27-February 25 at Work Gallery


Published: 12 January, 2012

Critical Dictionary, an upcoming group show at Work Gallery, in Acton Street, King’s Cross, promises to “declassify” terms and concepts in a playful manner that emphasises the open-ended nature of language.

Through this process of unravelling, the exhibition generates dialogues between an eclectic plethora of themes.

Each of the contributing artists is engaged in a visual game to awaken the gaps that exist between a text and its plurality of meanings, often taking an “original” artwork as a starting point.

Inspired by Georges Bataille’s infamous anti-dictionary for the dissident Surrealist journal Documents, the exhibition explores and expands the previous incarnations of curator David Evans’ Critical Dictionary project.

• Critical Dictionary runs from January 27-February 25 at Work Gallery, 10a Acton Street, WC1X 9NG, open 12-5.30pm Wednesday-Saturday,
020 7713 5097,
