A 21st-Century Ferlinghetti

Part of Poetry International

Come along to this exhibition celebrating Beat poet, publisher, painter and activist Lawrence Ferlinghetti, who marked his 100th birthday this year.

On display are examples of Ferlinghetti's visual work, as well as video and audio of him reading his poetry.

Explore archival materials, including a letter written by Ferlinghetti, from the National Poetry Library collection.

As part of the exhibition, a range of UK poets present newly commissioned poems responding to Ferlinghetti's life and work.

The evening features newly commissioned work from performance artists boyleANDshaw.
