Curator’s talk: Poem, Story & Scape in the work of Kevin Crossley-Holland

Join guest curator Dr Catherine Batt in this online talk about a new exhibition exploring the work of poet and author Kevin Crossley-Holland

A new exhibition, opening 29 March at The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery, explores the centrality of myth, history, poetry and place in the work of prize-winning poet, author, and translator Kevin Crossley-Holland.

Join curator Dr Catherine Batt to find out more about the exhibition’s development and the material used from the Crossley-Holland Archive, and his collection of artwork and artefacts.

Over a long and storied career, Kevin Crossley-Holland has written in a range of forms: poetry, fiction, memoir, libretti, traditional tales and translation. A strong sense of myth, history, poetry and place resonate throughout his work. This new exhibition explores these themes from his earliest experiences to his most celebrated works.

This talk will take place online. Pre-booking is required, a link will be sent the day before the event.
