A collaboration between Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles and New York City's Faction Art Projects has produced "Visual Language," a bicoastal exhibition with both spaces carrying works from major contemporary artists. The charge is "investigating various approaches to the use of words and images in art and Western Culture,” with artists including Jenny Holzer, Guerrilla Girls, Scott Albrecht, Ramsey Dau, Wayne White, Betty Tomkins, DFace, Ed Ruscha, Shepard Fairey, Nathaniel Russell, Chad Kouri, and Umar Rashid.

“The tone of the works gathered in ‘Visual Language’ reflects each artist’s diversity, ranging from political, ironic, poetic, typographic, and abstract,” organizers say. “In each gallery the artworks will work in parallel or collaboratively, while others will juxtapose and subvert, offering a strong critical frame through which to view contemporary culture in this period of ‘fake news’ and ‘alternative facts.’”

The Subliminal Projects prong of the exhibition kicks off Sept. 8, while the FACTION leg starts on Sept. 13.
