R.B. Kitaj and Paula Rego in Journeys with The Waste Land at Turner Contemporary

“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 poem through the visual arts. Presenting over 60 artists, and almost 100 objects, the exhibition includes works by Cecil Collins, John Davies, Tacita Dean, Edward Hopper, R.B. Kitaj, Barbara Kruger, Helen Marten, Henry Moore, Paula Rego and JMW Turner. The exhibition will explore how contemporary and historical art can enable us to reflect on the poem’s shifting flow of diverse voices, references, characters and places.

The exhibition will take place from February 3 - May 7, 2018 at Turner Contemporary, Kent, United Kingdom.
