Carolyn Thompson: Post Moderns

2019 - 4th October 19
Shandy Hall, Coxwold, York


Carolyn Thompson’s new work is based on the 50 texts found in the Penguin Modern Box Set (2018), which celebrates the pioneering spirit of Penguin’s publishing. The collection includes seminal works by Samuel Beckett, Truman Capote, Allen Ginsberg, Dorothy Parker, George Simenon, and Susan Sontag amongst others.

Consisting of 50 separate artworks, each one responding to one book from the collection, Thompson’s project includes text pieces, drawings, embroideries, prints and altered books. A solo exhibition of the full set of works, Post Moderns, will be held at the Laurence Sterne Trust, Shandy Hall, York, from 8 September until 4 October 2019, and Eagle Gallery, London in February 2020.

Exhibition open 11am - 4.30pm, every day except Saturday, and by appointment at other times. Admission to the exhibition is free.
