Journeys with the waste land exhibition at the herbert
Journeys With ‘The Waste Land’ Exhibition

Date: 15 September 2018 - 18 November 2018

Every day

Location: Coventry - Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Jordan Well, Coventry City Centre, CV1 5QP

Journeys with ‘The Waste Land' explores the contemporary significance of TS Eliot’s seminal poem and the way it has resonated with artists over the years.

A visual response for Coventry to TS Eliot’s poem

The Waste Land is a major work of 20th century literature, written by TS Eliot in 1921 in the aftermath of the First World War. Journeys with ‘The Waste Land’ is an exhibition led by independent curator, Michael Tooby, and organised in collaboration with Turner Contemporary in Margate, by the Mead Gallery and the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in association with Coventry Cathedral. This exhibition explores the contemporary significance of TS Eliot’s seminal poem and the way it has resonated with artists over the years.

The works selected for exhibition have been researched by a group of volunteers drawn from the Coventry area and include historical and contemporary works by artists including Peter Blake, Jacob Epstein, Elisabeth Frink, RB Kitaj, Percy Wyndham Lewis, Paul Nash, George Shaw, John Stezaker, Graham Sutherland and JMW Turner. Through these works, the exhibition explores themes within Eliot’s poem of journeys and fragmentation. The selection also makes reference to Coventry’s history as a city fragmented by, and rebuilt upon, the ruins of war.
