Journeys with 'The Waste Land'

Saturday 03 February 2018Monday 07 May 2018

Exhibition exploring TS Eliot's poem The Waste Land, including work by Fiona Banner, Cecil Collins, Tacita Dean, Elisabeth Frink, Patrick Heron, Edward Hopper, Barbara Kruger, Helen Marten, Henry Moore, Paul Nash, Paula Rego, John Smith and JMW Turner. The exhibition explores how contemporary and historical art can enable us to reflect on the poem’s shifting flow of diverse voices, references, characters and places. The exhibition is the culmination of a three year project developed by local residents, coming together as the Waste land Research Group. In 1921, TS Eliot spent a few weeks in Margate at a crucial moment in his career. He arrived in a fragile state, physically and mentally, and worked on The Waste Land sitting in the Nayland Rock shelter on Margate Sands.
