The Erasure of John Baskerville Exhibition & Micro Residency

Baskerville Poster copyI have an exhibition and micro residency at the University of Birmingham on Saturday 14th – Sunday 15th March 2015 from 10:00 – 17:00 called The Erasure of John Baskerville.

I will be showing drawings and interventions on the Ground Floor of the Arts Building (R16) exploring the legacy of the typographer, John Baskerville who lived in Birmingham in the 18th Cenury. I will also be making work in situ, in response to words heard at the Beauty of Letters Conference. Working in the Baskerville font, I will render these words onto lengths of paper.

The conference will be a fantastic event with many superb speakers including Lynda Mugglestone, Jenny Uglow and Susan Whyman and is organised by Professor Caroline Archer (BCU) and Professor Malcom Dick (UoB).
