Thoughts become words, words become images is bringing together painters, visual artists, musicians, and photographers to highlight the ways literature and art can speak to each other. Comprised entirely of short films, photographs, and paintings about books, each piece is its creators’ own interpretation of the theme, and tells its own story. Filmmakers Dev Hynes and Gia Coppola are joined by newer visual and musical artists Kelsey Lu, Amanda Charchian, Cassi Namoda, and Lily Gavin to present new original works to pay homage to the power of literature and its visual counterparts.
