Modern Art Oxford and Oxford Brookes University invite people based in Oxfordshire to submit their creative responses to Sign Symbol Sound, a new interdisciplinary exhibition exploring language and creativity. 

Sign Symbol Sound explores the variety of ways in which we communicate, connect, and seek to understand each other. From the language we acquire as children, to the creative interpretation of signs, symbols and sounds that shape our experiences of the world.

We welcome submissions that reflect language and creativity in all disciplines and areas of life; auditory, visual, spoken and signed. The exhibition will be co-curated by members of the volunteer team at Modern Art Oxford, with Creative Associate, Laura Purseglove.

We welcome submissions from all ages, professions and disciplines. Submissions can take many different forms: from a shape or a sound, to mathematical and scientific languages, observations in nature to personal conversations and abstract objects.

We are interested in the images, sounds, texts, or movement and objects, which reflect your experience of language, creativity and community.



Exhibition Dates: 4 September – 11 October 2021

Deadline for Submissions: Monday 21 June 2021, 5pm
