TARR: Fiction by Artists

TARR: Fiction by Artists
BALTIC Kitchen, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art
Thursday 24 April 2014 / 19.00-21.00
Tickets £6.00 / £4.50 concessions
Includes soup/bread on arrival

To coincide with Simon Bill's exhibition Lucky Jim, BALTIC presents an evening of fiction by artists in the newly refurbished BALTIC Kitchen.

TARR is an event that brings together a small selection of artists (and curators and critics) who are writing literary fiction. The title is borrowed from a 1918 novel about the lives of artists in pre-war Paris written by the painter Wyndham Lewis, a rare precedent for this now growing phenomenon.

For this event an audience will join six writers with art world backgrounds - Paul Becker, Simon Bill, Faye Green, Jennifer Higgie , Tom Morton, Audrey Reynolds - to hear them read short extracts from their works of fiction, either published or in progress. There will follow an informal discussion in which we will be invited to speculate about the reasons for this move towards an established creative form outside the world of visual art.

*Concession rate applies to over 60s, unwaged and students with a valid NUS card.
