CODE WORD SAFE is an exhibition that brings together six Los Angeles based artists who use text, symbols and mixed media in their art works and performances to communicate social, political and personal messages that are spoken, painted, sewn and graphically produced.
The title, CODE WORD SAFE, relates to the idea that art can manifest in physical, mental and public spaces offering safe means for viewers to learn and enrich their lives powerfully and constructively.
Under the study of semantics, the sub category pragmatics identifies words and language understood through context. The artists in CODE WORD SAFE use pragmatics in different forms to facture creative and new paradigms of communicating through visual and spoken revelations.
In our contemporary society, written and spoken language is analyzed faster and with the utmost scrutiny. As a group, the artists in Code Word Safe are different in their approach to issuing their messages through text and language. Through this exhibition the artists’ works will promote visual and textual connections that excite and inspire viewers to draw new conclusions through language and context.
