The Four Letter Word

‘The Four Letter Word’ ponders the question, ‘What is love?’

Sophia Cai, as part of Artbank’s emerging curators program, selected artworks from the Artbank collection as well as some on loan, to present this visual exploration of love in all its forms.

Paintings, prints, photographs and video interpret the notions of love with articulations of intimacy, self-love, vulnerability, doubt, fear, identity and desire by artists including Shivanjani Lal, Brendan Huntley, Anastasia Klose and Doreen Chapman, among others.
