Surrealism: Wellspring of the Imagination
An Evening of Readings
7.00pm (readings to start at 7.30pm)
This evening of readings by surrealists living in Wales, Jean Bonnin, Neil Coombs, David Greenslade, John Richardson & John Welson, is held as part of the Surrealism: Wellspring of the Imagination exhibition and highlights that surrealism was originally a movement of poets eg André Breton, Paul Éluard, Louis Aragon, Philippe Soupault and that its key precursors were writers such as Lautréamont and Rimbaud – not a bowler at or melting clock in sight! The evening will include a short overview of surrealism with readings from each of the contributors of their own work and that of other surrealists.
Seating will be cabaret style in our Gallery.
Running time 90 minutes approx.
