HOAX is an ongoing curatorial project dedicated to giving an online, print and IRL platform to work that exists at the intersection of art and creative writing. We’re like a hybrid of an exhibition, a publishing space, a commissioning programme, and an ever-expanding survey and archive. We give a freely-accessible, public home to bold, new creative work that incorporates text, presenting one new work a week and hosting a digital archive of more than 250 works.
HOAX was started by Lulu Nunn in 2011 to examine the evolving use of text in the arts, and to be a positive, collaborative and emancipatory presence in an increasingly exploitative and reactionary art world. To date, we have presented original works by over 200 international artists and writers, and produced seven free-of-charge print editions, organising a physical event or exhibition to accompany each. www.hoaxpublication.org
