Learn to Read is the latest exhibition in the Level 2 Gallery series which forecasts themes and trends in international contemporary art. This dense and visually diverse display brings together works by 29 artists which play with text, erasure and miscommunication. Learn to Read explores failed articulations, shifts and slippages through translation, repetitions, memories and humour. The works resonate with the influence of Dada, Fluxus, Letterism and conceptual art.
