St Mungos Mirrorball
Please note, this event has moved to GOMA, Royal Exchange Square, G1 3AH.
Following the fire at Glasgow School of Art and the O2 ABC music venue, the Centre for Contemporary Arts remains within the cordoned area in Garnethill. At this time, we expect to remain closed until Monday 15 October.
We are working with our programme partners who had scheduled events throughout this period. Details of new venues and cancellations are here.
This national poetry day event celebrates the anniversary of two poets who spent considerable time in the company of artists . WS Graham was born in Greenock in 1918 the same month Guillaume Apollinaire died in Paris
William Sydney Graham would spend most of his adult life in Cornwall and became closely associated with artist’s colony in St Ives. His poems explore the possibilities of language
Guillaume Apollinaire also pushed the boundaries of what poetry can be. In Paris he befriended many avant-garde artists, including Matisse, Picasso, de Chirico and Duchamp. His brief career influenced the development of such artistic movements as Futurism, Cubism, Dadaism, and Surrealism
There will short talks on their life and works and Mirrorball members will read some of their personal favourites
