A journey with 'The waste land'

Tooby, M and Scott, T (2016) A journey with 'The waste land'. Arts & Education (8). pp. 8-9.

Abstract

'A Journey with ‘The Waste Land’' is a new project by Turner Contemporary in Margate. Members of the community are working with the gallery to co-curate a major exhibition in 2018. It will explore the connections between the visual arts and T.S Eliot’s great poem ‘ The Waste Land ’, partially written in Margate in 1921. The exhibition will then be shown at Leeds Art Gallery and Mead Gallery, Warwick Arts Centre. Mike Tooby initiated the project with Turner Contemporary and is Guest Curator for the exhibition. Trish Scott is Research Curator, and lives locally in Margate. Mike and Trish are currently working with forty members of the local community to develop the exhibition, although at different points many more have already been involved. In the email exchange published in 'Arts & Education', Mike, Trish and three participants – Alicia Box, Elspeth Penfold and Franca Pauli - reflect on the project to date.
