Unit price

This book of poetry by John Lyons about life in the Caribbean is part of the exhibition range for the exhibition John Lyons: Carnivalesque at the Whitworth.

Published in 1993.

Spanning six decades, the exhibition surveys his contribution to British art, literature and art education, centred on his exploration of Trinidadian folklore and mythology through painting and poetry. The show includes paintings, drawings and woodcuts, with selected small sculptures and sketchbooks. It includes Lyons’ poetry via text and sound, and importantly, explores the links between his visual and literary practices.

This exhibition is on display at the Whitworth from 10 May - 25 August 2024.
