Dear lovers of art and poetry,
Robert Montgomery teams up with JACK arts for an astonishing street exhibition in Shoreditch.
YOUR SPACE OR MINE will feature a series of billboard poems by Robert Montgomery available for all to see on various sites in Commercial Street, Ebor Street, Curtain Road, Old Street and Broadway Market.
The show will run only for the weekend of Saturday 7 to Sunday 8 October.
On Saturday 7 Oct at 4.00pm-5.30pm, Robert will team up with fellow poet and psychogeographer Niall McDevitt for a walk along the route of the poems. Robert will recite and discuss his work, addressing the major theme of Modernism, while McDevitt will tell the story of how historic Shoreditch poets such as William Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe, Ben Jonson and Emilia Lanyer developed early modern English poetry – and early modern English itself – in these same streets, representing the artistic wing of humanism.
McDevitt will also point out parallels in Robert Montgomery’s themes with those of the historic poets, such as immigration, gender equality, the city, and politics. To register for the walk, click below:
Meet for the walk at 4pm at ANDAZ Hotel, 40 Liverpool Street, London EC2M 7QN.
All our love and light,
New River Press
