Adults £20 (excluding booking fee)
Doors open 8pm, performance starts 9pm
In this exclusive performance, agent of chaos Mark E. Smith will respond to Britain’s original rebel artist Wyndham Lewis. The Fall’s formidable frontman will share his personal response to the work of one of the art world's most controversial figures whose ideas, opinions, and personality enticed and repelled in equal measure.
Set in the dramatic Daniel Libeskind-designed IWM North, Mark E. Smith will lead a performance of speeches, poems and ramblings driven by roaring live percussion against a backdrop of large-scale projections from IWM's archive.
Part of Wyndham Lewis: Life, Art, War, an exhibition and events season about Britain's original rebel artist.
