Listening Event: The Nova Convention (1979)
Thursday 4 October / 6.30pm / Free

In 1979, the poet John Giorno was approached to organise an event to commemorate the extraordinary work of writer William Burroughs. Giorno gathered together an array of high profile writers, poets, artists and musicians - including Patti Smith, Phillip Glass, Blondie, John Cage and Burroughs himself - for a three day and night programme of talks, film screenings and performances. At this event, we will be playing a selection of audio recordings from the New York event to transport the audience back to this key moment in cultural history.
