Text and image are two forms of communication that have enormous potential to combine, intermingle, blend, and flow - thus creating new modes of expression. This is the underlying theme of 'flō: art, text, new media, a group exhibition opening at The Center for Book Arts, on view from April 15 to June 27, 2009.

The exhibition features over thirty artists, whose backgrounds are in different media, including painting, sculpture, video and performance art, printing, and the book arts. These artists are exhibiting new work that exemplifies the creative dynamism of melding the written word with visual arts.

Exhibition Curator Rocío Aranda-Alvarado says: "Through the imaginative prism of these artists, it's no longer necessary to regard text and image as separate substances, like oil and water. Instead, they have profound potential to blend and create a synthesis of expressive forms, something beyond the realm of traditional media.
