Exotica Suite: Book and CD Launch

1 Jan, 1970 at 12:00 am - 10 Jul, 2015 at 12:00 am

New Art Exchange and Arts Council England are currently supporting Exotica Suite – a collaborative work by the writer Wayne Burrows and musician Paul Isherwood (The Soundcarriers).

The project explores the ‘Exotica’ craze of the 1950s and the threads connecting its play with real and fictional cultural artefacts from eighteenth century Polynesia and England with the play on identity that informed the work of artists like Sun Ra, Amos Tutuola and E.A. Markham.

The project concludes with this event to launch a book and CD featuring all the texts and music produced by the artists, along with the premiere screening of a 45 minute cycle of short films.

Age range: All are welcome
Admission: FREE
