‘PERSONAL ARCHAEOLOGY’ DISCUSSION EVENT
Pictured: Parasol Unit, which is next to the equally lovely Victoria Miro gallery.
Our sister publication, Heart Archives by Sue Rose (out 20 Feb 2014), is the springboard for a major discussion event at the Parasol Unit foundation in Islington. Family history is a rich source for artists, and the poets Sue Rose, Anna Robinson and Hannah Lowe all mine this seam to produce powerful narratives. Join them in a discussion exploring how they use memory and archive to turn private reminiscence into public statement, and the ways creative writers and visual artists can gain inspiration from each other. Timed to coincide with Women’s History Month, the event is hosted by Hercules Editions and chaired by Tamar Yoseloff.
The venue, Parasol Unit, is a gallery renowned for both cutting edge visual art and a serious engagement with poetry. It occupies a stunning minimalist building backing onto a pretty “hidden” canal just a short walk from Angel Islington or Old Street tubes. The discussion will take place on Friday 14 March 2014 from 7–9pm, and tickets are available from the gallery at £6 (£5 concessions).
