The Herbert Art Gallery
10-4pm 8th March 2018
The Coventry Waste Land group are staging a “Dry Run” of the planned exhibition and would like to invite anyone interested to come and see the progress so far, and maybe comment on the direction it is taking. This is being held at The Herbert Art Gallery on Thursday 8th March from 10-4pm, refreshments will be served. Anyone interested in the poem, T S Eliot, Art, Coventry, galleries, curation or any aspect of the project will be welcome. Students and school groups would be great.
In the spirit of a community designed exhibition and we would appreciate your input at this early stage, so that we can catch the mood of the City and its neighbours.
It is also an opportunity to come and chat to the team about possible events to be staged alongside the Journeys with “The Waste Land” exhibition from your own organisation or group. Leamington Studio Artists are planning an Open Exhibition of their own in response to T S Eliot’s poem “The Waste Land”. Details on the submission of work will be available soon, so start thinking about your response to the poem if you fancy creating a piece for the LSA exhibition.
Other ideas floated are:
- Poetry Reading
- Poetry Slam
- Dance event
- and anything else you can think of!
Pass on the invitation to anyone you think may be interested and it would be great to see you there!
