Tarek Lakhrissi exhibits in the group show 'Poet Slash Artist' at HOME as part of Manchester International Festival, UK until 18 July 2021.
Lakhrissi exhibits his short film 'Hard to Love' (2017) as well as producing the new series of 6 posters 'PROBLEMS POEMS POWERS POSTERS' (2021) in collaboration with graphic designer Jehane Yazami.
"Poet Slash Artist is an exploration of poets who work with visual art and visual artists who work with poetry. Throughout the history of art and literature today there are more words and images passing between us than ever.
Poet Slash Artist is an expansive exhibition of cultures, continents, languages and generations, blurring the lines of received opinion. The streets of Manchester will become the art gallery featuring specially commissioned new work (check back in June for locations and a map) and the heart of the exhibition will be at HOME because home is where the art is.
There’ll also be a day of spoken word and music at Homeground, HOME’s summer-long open-air stage, and a film season at HOME featuring artists whose work overlaps the worlds of poetry and visual art. Details of both will be announced in the coming weeks."
