Ginsberg snaps to The Beat – If you’re a fan of the Beat Generation and you live in New York, then you might want to get yourself along to the NYU’s Grey Art Gallery where there is an exhibition of photographs snapped by none other than Beat icon, Allen Ginsberg. All the usual suspects from Ginsberg’s circle of friends are captured – Kerouac, Burroughs, Neal Cassady etc. and there’s even a few of Ginsberg himself. The exhibitions runs until April 6th.
And what about fans of the Beat Generation who live outside of New York I hear you cry. Well, the Grey Art Gallery have kindly put up an exhibition gallery online so that we can all enjoy the fruits of Ginsberg’s photographic labours. I know, they’re spoiling us aren’t they? 🙂
Ballard on film – Are you a fan of sci-fi writer J.G. Ballard? Good, then you’ll love this short documentary about him, in which he’s extensively interviewed and grilled with a ton of YES/NO questions. It was produced in 1983 by The Unlimited Dream Company.
