A new initiative by Wei-Ling Galleries, a collaborative programme entitled “The Visual Poetry Project”, aims to bring the visual art scene and literature community together, by highlighting the links between these two mediums of creative expression.

In this series, the gallery hopes that poets and writers will be inspired to respond to artworks through written word.
