We went to Margate this weekend for the opening of our sister exhibition at Turner Contemporary it was amazing! “We” are a group of volunteers brought together by the project, headed by Prof. Mike Tooby, from an invitation by The Mead Gallery at the University of Warwick Arts Centre. We went to Margate to support the programme of course, but we also wanted to steal some ideas and gain inspiration for the Coventry show.
There are core works coming up to Coventry from the Margate exhibition for our version of Journeys with “The Waste Land”, but we will be adding artwork that we think reflect themes appropriate to Coventry. Our chosen themes are Journeys and Fragmentation and have been inspired by the T S Eliot poem “The Waste Land”.
