Postcards From a Poet

Curated by Cara Newman

Chelsea College of Arts Library

27 April – 5 May 2016

Following on from the recent MA Curating and Collections exhibition #8 Jocelyn Herbert and Tony Harrison, the current exhibition, Postcards from a Poet features a collection of postcards written by poet and theatre director Tony Harrison to his stage and production manager and friend Trish Montemuro over the course of 25 years of working together.

Postcards from a Poet is inspired by Trish Montemuro’s 2007 essay Postcards From a Well-Traveled Poet in which specific postcards thoughtfully highlight the musings of the poet Tony Harrison.

The essay can be read here on the ESW Projects and Exhibitions blog and the postcards are on display in the Chelsea College of Arts Library between the 27th April 2016 – 5th May 2016.
