Published for Syntax Season on February 19, 2017

This publication was produced in conjunction with Syntax Season, a long-form exhibition series organized by A\M and hosted by PRINTtEXT in Indianapolis, Indiana. The series took place over the course of ten months, from May 2016 to February 2017. Included in this publication are a selection of texts and images of works by artists who mobilize typography, iconography, and cultural signifiers to explore topics such as gender, race, identity, representation, and language itself. Far from a definitive collection of such works and modes of making, this journal seeks to extend Syntax Season by bringing together additional artists whose text-based strategies range from humorous to sincere, intimate to oblique. Working with words, text, text-like images, and image-like texts, these artists and writers consider how we engage with language and, more specifically, how we construct meaning.
