Adrian Henri – Painter/Poet/Performer
Adrian Henri was a “total artist” – he came to prominence as a poet in 1967 alongside Roger McGough and Brian Patten, but he had trained as a painter, set up the first Happenings in Britain, and exhibited widely. Dubbed by John Peel “one of the great non-singers of our time,” Henri also fronted the unlikely poetry-and-rock band Liverpool Scene. In 1969, they supported Led Zeppelin, played the Isle of Wight Festival and toured America.
In this exhibition, curated by Catherine Marcangeli, 1960s artworks, poems and original rock posters offer a glimpse of Henri’s multi-faceted talents.
This event is FREE and is available to view in the Dickens and Gladstone Galleries, St George’s Hall (entrance via Heritage Centre).
