Meghana Bisineer | 01-Jun-11 to 03-Jul-11

Indian artist Meghana Bisineer is resident artist at the library. Her site specific drawing and animation is a constant negotiation between the urban space and its borders. Taking inspiration from the poetry collection, she will apply her unique methodology of drawing directly onto large scale windows, using the Southbank cityscape as her canvas, to develop a time-lapse animation over the duration of the exhibition.

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 celebrations, contemporary artists are given a rare opportunity to draw upon Southbank Centre's archives and re-consider British identity sixty years on.

KALEID editions represents 'artists who do books', advocating public library collections and an interdisciplinary approach to artists' books. Visit the Saison Poetry Library on the fifth level of the Royal Festival Hall to discover the most comprehensive and accessible collection of poetry from 1912 in Britain.
