“On Margate Sands.

I can connect

Nothing with nothing.”

(T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land)

 

Journeys with ‘The Waste Land’ is a major exhibition exploring the significance of T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land through visual arts. Presenting artworks from the 19th century to the present, including film, photography and artefacts, the exhibition explores how contemporary and historical art can enable us to reflect on the poem, and its shifting flow of diverse voices, references, characters and places.

 

In 1921, T.S. Eliot spent a few weeks in Margate at a crucial moment in his career. He arrived in a fragile state, physically and mentally, and worked on The Waste Land. The poem was published the following year, and proved to be a pivotal and influential modernist work.

Journeys with ‘The Waste Land’ is being sponsored by The Canterbury Auction Galleries.
