Welcome to the website of Art Language Location (ALL), the artist-run organisation working at the intersection between art, text and place.
ALL is a not-for-profit, collaborative organisation run by artists based in Cambridge UK. Our aim is to support artists and projects to bring innovative, exciting and experimental text-based art to unusual and interesting locations across Cambridge and beyond. ALL began with Text&Context in October 2012 and took the format of an art festival and symposium in Cambridge until 2016, featuring and connecting more than 150 artists with over 80 different locations through a series of exhibitions, festivals and one-off events.
To find out more you can Take a Tour to see selected highlights and read the In The Beginning page. For more images, Browse our Archive for a full scrapbook of year-by-year photos, videos and other snippets. And don’t forget to check out our ALL Artist Spotlight for this month’s artist profile.
ALL was reorganised during 2017 to move away from a festival approach and refocus on a range of Projects and collaborations.
We have had significant sponsorship and help from many supporters, including Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge Festival of Ideas, Cambridge Assessment and Arts Council England, plus the many locations that have hosted artworks on our behalf over the years.
We are always interested in new ideas, collaborations and partnerships. So if you would like to Get involved – as artist, curator, sponsor or supporter – then do get in touch. Alternatively, you can sign up for our occasional newsletter which will notify you of forthcoming events, and check our Callouts and Opportunities page for current callouts and projects in progress.
Very best wishes from
Robert Good, Rebecca Ilett and The ALL Committee
