Language is the
accumulation of
connections where
there were no
such connections

1947 – New York. 

The exhibition:
Is the first UK show
dedicated to the
artist, structured
around fragments
of Acker’s writing,
which serve as
catalysts for a network
of interconnected
materials presented
around them, including
works by other artists
and writers, video and
audio documentation
of Acker’s performative
appearances in various
cultural and media
contexts & documents,
and books from her
personal archive. 

I, I, I, I, I, I, I,
Kathy Acker looks
particularly to
contemporary artists
working across visual
arts, literature and
performance, illuminating
points of connection
and resistance to
Acker’s linguistic
methodologies and
lines of thought.
