Art on Poetry | 20-Apr-11 to 25-Sep-11


April - September 2011

A dedicated season of artists' books curated by KALEID editions. Twelve internationally acclaimed artists engage with the Saison Poetry Library's collection in a diverse programme of exhibitions, interventions, residencies and participatory events.

Prompted by The Festival of Britain's 'tonic for the nation' in 1951, a selection of contemporary artists are given a rare opportunity to plunder the Southbank Centre's archives and re-consider British identity sixty years on.

The Saison Poetry Library is the most comprehensive and accessible collection of poetry from 1912 in Britain. Join us each month on the 'Poetry Level' on level 5 of the Royal Festival Hall to discover a cornucopia of artists' books and the Arts Council collection of modern poetry.
