Journeys With ‘The Waste Land’ Exhibition

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.

Slow Moving Clouds

Date: 23 October 2018

Location: Warwick Arts Centre Gibbet Hill Road, Coventry, CV4 7AL

Slow Moving Clouds are a contemporary acoustic band based in Dublin. They combine roots in Nordic and Irish traditional music with minimalist and experimental influences to create a unique sound.

Slow Moving Clouds' new debut album Starfall blends traditional and contemporary melodies, evocative Nordic vocals and layered string soundscapes of cello, violin and nyckelharpa. The lush and darkly atmospheric results have drawn comparisons to Icelandic minimalist pop legends Sigur Rós and Irish traditional supergroup The Gloaming.

Supported by Culture Ireland as part of GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain.
