William S Burroughs – New Exhibition
Londoners, here’s something awesome to mark in your summer diaries. An exciting new exhibition of William S Burroughs’ original art, intriguingly entitled ‘Animals in the Wall’, opens this week. Showcasing a new side to Burroughs’ work and premiering in the artistic hub of East London, the exhibition also features original responses from well known and emerging artists, including friend of Something You Said, Sydney’s own Ben Frost.
The exhibition, curated by James Elphick & Yuri Zupancic, will exhibit 40 original William S Burroughs artworks, many of which have not been seen in public before.
The Beat Generation questioned politics, explored religion, developed styles & creative methods, and wrote about the human condition. This legacy is explored, re-defined and re-appropriated for a modern audience through connected commissioned artists (and events programme), deliberately designed to expand, introduce and directly engage with young, innovative, and cultured audiences alongside mature fans of arts and literature.
If you are going to be in London between this Friday 29th and the following Sunday (7th Sept), you’d be a fool not to check it out.
DATES & TIMES: Friday 29th Aug – Sunday 7th Sept, 11am – 7pm
