It is a source of satisfaction that the relationship with Tampere Art Museum in Finland, which last manifested itself in the Moomins exhibited at Bury Art Museum, has led to a partnership in Text Art now. "Text Art - Poetry for the Eye" opens on Saturday at TR1 and runs until 29 May.
Finnish artists included are Tytti Heikkinen, Satu Kaikkonen, Jukka-Pekka Kervinen, Karri Kokko, Tiina Lehikoinen, Marko Niemi & Miia Toivio and JP Sipilä. From the Text Festival, we have added Tony Lopez, Liz Collini (pictured), Steve Miller, Shaun Pickard, Derek Beaulieu and Márton Koppány.
Due to my Chinese trip, I won't get to see the show until mid April - there's a poetry event as part of the show on 22 April, which I will be doing something at.
...and now, to Beijing...
