Love is a slippery beast. Encompassing a range of expressions and affections spanning broader cultural, political and social institutions, love is a difficult concept to elucidate. What one considers love may not hold the same for others.

The Four Letter Word is an outcome of Artbank’s emerging curators program and brings together artworks from its collection and loans that examine the age-old question – ‘what is love’? Curated by Sophia Cai, the works in the exhibition explore a range of topics including intimacy, self-expression, vulnerability, identity and desire. Together, the works give insight into how the personal becomes politicised, and how something that originates as a feeling or abstract idea can take physical form and action.
