Second International Illustration Symposium; Illustration & Writing

The Second International Illustration Symposium; Illustration & Writing is taking place on November 3 and 4 at Manchester Metropolitan University. Illustration Lecturers Howard Read, Ben Kelly and John Clementson will be participating.

The 2nd International Illustration Research Symposium looks to illustration as an expression of the ‘primary language of vision’ (Kepes) and aims to integrate its practices and philosophies, both historical and emerging. The event seeks to expand the theoretical and practical frameworks and nuances of this potent and far-reaching discipline.

Illustration and Writing will look at illustration as visual language, and reflect on the role of the image within, around and in place of writing. We hope to explore the ways that purposeful images can augment, clarify or problematise meaning in relation to text.
