LA’s HVW8 Gallery is set to launch a group exhibition entitled “Thoughts Become Words, Words Become Images” that focuses on literature as an art form. Curated by Anaïs Ngbanzo, the sprawling presentation will display works by a diverse range of artists. Participants include Dev Hynes of Blood Orange, director and photographer Gia Coppola, photographer Amanda Charchian, musician and filmmaker Kelsey Lu, painter Cassi Namoda, and photographer Lily Gavin. All of the pieces in the show center upon books such as Joseph Conrad’s 1915 novel ‘Victory,’ Patrick Süskind’s 1985 masterpiece ‘Perfume: The Story of a Murderer,’ and Essex Hemphill’s poetry.

“Stressing the freedom of a multiplicity of voices and viewpoints, each artist had carte blanche to choose a book to develop a story. The selected writers might be from Germany, Poland, or America, but they all have something in common: they evoke our common humanity in narratives with which we can identify, even though their lives may be remote from our own. They negotiate the freedom of interpretation which leads us today to these pieces of art,” said the gallery in a statement.

View select works above and then visit HVW8 Gallery’s website to learn more. The exhibition will run through September 12 to October 13.

In other art stories, Q-Tip will showcase his personal art collection at Bonhams New York.

RSVP at rsvp@hvw8.com A group show with Dev Hynes, Gia Coppola, Kelsey Lu, Lily Gavin, Cassi Namoda and Amanda Charchian curated by Anaïs Ngbanzo at HVW8 gallery, Los Angeles. Literature in itself is an art form; carefully chosen words paint visuals upon a page for the theater of the mind. This has often inspired other, more visually oriented artists to create works based upon these mental images. ‘Thoughts become words, words become images’ is an exhibition which illuminates the interplay between literature and visual art.
