Lis Rhodes: Telling Invents Told – Reading Group

Lis Rhodes is an artist who takes words seriously, whether spoken, on the page or on the screen. Telling Invents Told draws together texts and images from across a career committed to unpicking the power relations of language. The book provides a rich inventory of texts written for a range of purposes: to accompany film images, to question established histories and advocate for the women left out of them, and, in extracts from her recent visual essay Journal of Disbelief, to call out injustices in all of their many forms. This indispensable volume offers a valuable opportunity to appreciate the inventiveness of Rhodes’ writing and its vital role in understanding her art.”
