Portraits of Anthony Burgess: special viewing (Friday)
- Fri 21 Jan 2022
- 12:00 pm
Our Portraits of Anthony Burgess exhibition spent 18 months hidden in lockdown. We are happy to announce a special viewing of this astonishing collection of Liana Burgess’s photographs.
The exhibition draws on the many thousands of photographs that Liana took. Her pictures are intimate, casual and lively. Burgess is performing, delivering a lecture, being interviewed or reading from his work; and he is also shown in unguarded moments, relaxed with his family – and occasionally even smiling.
To see the exhibition, drop in to the Burgess Foundation during the following times: Monday 17th January to Friday 21st January, 12pm until 4pm. Entry is free, and there will be a Burgess Foundation staff member on hand to answer any questions you have about Anthony Burgess.
