Thank you so much to everyone who has supported the exhibition, we love you all.

 

Twenty Six is a fundraising exhibition bringing together twenty-six designers, artists and creators to raise money for the Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation’s ‘Subtext: Art for Literacy’ children’s art program.

 

Subtext is an intensive art program that merges arts with the written word to provide a powerful means for young people of refugee background to express the complex and diverse aspects of their pasts, presents and futures.

 

 

The Artwork

Each artwork responds to a selection of design terms and an emotion. In doing so we hope to shed light on the range of emotions (positive and negative) experienced by individuals who struggle with literacy and numeracy. Each print is lovingly letterpress printed by Hungry Workshop. The history of letterpress is intimately tied with the democratisation of the written word and our hope is to play some part in continuing that legacy.

The Night

Join us on Thursday 12 December at Backwoods Gallery, 25 Easey St, Collingwood from 6.30pm. All prints will be available for purchase (if not sold out online first) or for pick-up if pre-purchased online. There will also be a one-of-a-kind framed print of each letter, available exclusively via silent auction on the night. These one-of-a-kind prints are letterpress printed in metallic silver on hand made black paper by Dodgy Paper. Each of these prints will be housed in a custom frame made by United Measures.

All are welcome! Drinks kindly donated by Bodriggy and Noisy Ritual. RSVP to the event here

The ALNF

The ALNF believe Australians have the right to literacy, because being able to read and write is the key to accessing education and employment, and to participating fully in society. Discover more about the ‘Subtext: Art for Literacy’ children’s art program and the great work of the ALNF.
