Currently reading : Animals In The Wall – William Burroughs at LondonNewcastle Gallery
Animals In The Wall will feature 40 original works by William Burroughs, in addition to new multimedia experiments, alongside an exciting programme of talks, film screenings and workshops at the LondonNewcastle space in Shoreditch, London.
You already know but lets think about it again – Burroughs was informed by a lifetime of dialogue with provocative and penetrating thinkers. Notable collaborators in his lifetime include Antony Balch, Ian Sommerville, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Keith Haring, Robert Rauschenberg, George Condo, Robert Wilson, Tom Waits, Kurt Cobain, John Giorno, Terry Southern, and Gregory Corso. He has been cited as having provided inspiration for countless of others, including David Bowie, David Cronenberg, Patti Smith, Will Self, William Gibson, Thurston Moore, John Waters, J.G. Ballard, The Beatles, and many more.
Burroughs is a prophet for the 21st Century with much of his artistic work still waiting to be unraveled. This exhibition is only on until the 7th of September and it would be sad to miss it.
