Abstract
Verbalising the Visual: Translating Art and Design into Words by Michael Clarke introduces readers to a broad range of language and terminology: formal and informal, academic and colloquial, global and local, all of which can be found in current art and design discourse.

Exploring the complex relationship between language, objects and meaning, Verbalising the Visual shows students how to select and effectively employ language to present oral and written critical assessments of visual culture.

It includes a variety of examples and case studies that explore the many ways in which language is used to discuss, describe, analyze and critically evaluate art and design.
