POSTPONED: Black Cat Art Collective: William S. Burroughs and Psychedelic Art


The great artists Frida Kahlo, Ernest Hemingway, Ai Weiwei, Salvador Dali, Karl Lagerfield, David Bowie and Marilyn Monroe were all owned by their cats and so when choosing a name for the meet-ups Black Cats Art Collective was born. The Black Cats Art Collective engage critically and creatively with varied forms of visual art through a series of monthly workshops. The sessions are devised and led by Prea Kaur and Danielle Wallace, both postgraduates at Keele University.

William S. Burroughs and Psychedelic Art | The Yage Letters and Native American Hallucinogens
This session focuses on both the written word and illustrations in Burroughs’ Yage Letters. We discuss how myths and legends of Yage interact with Burroughs’ alter ego, Bill and his versions of reality as well as the western scientific discovery of Yage.

FREE | All are welcome to attend!

Please reserve your space and either contact Prea or Danielle through email.
