Frank O'Hara: Why I Am Not A Painter | 26-Jan-16 to 06-Mar-16

American poet Frank O'Hara died 50 years ago and would have turned 90 this year. This free exhibition celebrates one of the most original and compelling poets of the 20th century. Drawing on the library's extensive holdings, Why I Am Not a Painter reveals the collaborative energy and speed of O'Hara's creative output and presents a rare opportunity to see a signed O'Hara book.

In addition to print materials there is also a chance to hear an audio recording of O'Hara reading, a video filmed just before his accidental death, and publications with illustrations from artists Michael Goldberg and Larry Rivers.

From Tuesday 26th January to Sunday 6th March 2016

Open Tuesday to Sunday, 11am - 8pm (closed Mondays)
