JOURNEYS WITH ‘THE WASTE LAND’ AT CRATE
Open: 21st April – 7th May, Every Saturday & Sunday, 12 – 4pm
Become a curator at CRATE, where you can select and make artworks, creating your own alternative version of Turner Contemporary's exhibition Journeys with ‘The Waste Land’.
Experiment with a selection of artworks responding to T .S. Eliot's poem The Waste Land, or make your own artworks in situ for inclusion in the show.
Journeys with ‘The Waste Land’ is a pioneering curatorial project in which members of the public were invited to form a ‘research group’, which over the course of three years determined the shape and content of the exhibition (open until 7 May 2018). Consequently the exhibition is the result of the many months the group have spent discussing personal connections between art, poetry and life.
This project at CRATE is hosted by members of the Waste Land Research Group, along with with artists, researchers and writers who all have connections with The Waste Land. All materials, a printer and an artwork table will be provided to make work. Journeys with ‘The Waste Land’ at CRATE explores the limitless possibilities available when making an exhibition.
