Word and Image: An Exhibition in Sterling Memorial Library

Sterling Memorial Library Nave

Free & open to the public

Word and Image has been curated by students in the Yale College seminar Word and Image led by Catherine Labio of the French and Comparative Literature departments. The exhibition examines the relationship between text and image in European, American, and Japanese art and literature. Students have drawn on the many resources of Yale University's libraries and art galleries and designed works of their own to create a theoretical space filled with tension, experimentation and exciting dynamism, where artists and writers from ancient times to the contemporary era interrogate the distinction between drawing and writing, narrative and illustration, reading and seeing.
