To celebrate the end of our fundraising campaign, and to thank everyone involved, The White Review is putting on a party on 1 October at Bethnal Green Working Mens Club, with readings and performances by TOM McCARTHY, artist and poet HEATHER PHILLIPSON, and KEVIN BREATHNACH.
Music will be supplied by Alex Hislop, aka LIXO, founder of the art and music collective GETME!
TOM McCARTHY is the author of the acclaimed novels Men in Space, C, Remainder, and Satin Island, which is shortlisted for this year’s Man Booker Prize. He is known in the art world for the reports, manifestos, and media interventions he has made as general secretary of the International Necronautical Society (INS), a semi-fictitious avant-garde network.
HEATHER PHILLIPSON works across video, sculpture, drawing, music, text and live events. Current and forthcoming solo exhibitions include the Istanbul Biennial, Performa New York, Schirn Frankfurt and the Sao Paulo Biennale; recent solo shows and events have taken place at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Dundee Contemporary Arts, the Serpentine Gallery and the ICA, alongside a video commission for Channel 4. Also an award-winning poet, Phillipson was named a Faber New Poet in 2009 and has published three collections of poetry, including Instant-flex 718, shortlisted for the 2013 Fenton Aldeburgh First Collection Prize. She was named a Next Generation Poet in 2014 and has been Writer in Residence at the Whitechapel Gallery in 2015.
