The “adventive moment” is here!
Come join us as we celebrate the opening of Durrell 2012: The Lawrence Durrell Centenary.
If I have spoken of time it is because the writer I was becoming was learning at last to inhabit those deserted spaces which time misses — beginning to live between the ticks of the clock, so to speak. The continuous present, which is the real history of that collective anecdote, the human mind; when the past is dead and the future represented only by desire and fear, what of that adventive moment which can’t be measured, can’t be dismissed?
— Lawrence Durrell, Clea: A Novel (1960).
The Opening Exhibition and Reception for Durrell 2012: The Lawrence Durrell Centenary will be held at 6.30 PM on the evening of Wednesday, 13 June,?at The Gallery at Foyles Books, 113-119?Charing Cross Road.
The Opening Exhibition will feature previously unseen photographs, letters, and manuscripts, along with a number of paintings by Oscar Epfs (Lawrence Durrell) and Nancy Durrell.
All of these items currently reside in private collections, so this exhibition presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view them.
The latest published titles related to the Lawrence Durrell Centenary will be available for purchase — including Faber’s Durrell Centenary reissues of The Alexandria Quartet and The Black Book. ?Wine will be served.
The Opening Exhibition and Reception for Durrell 2012: The Lawrence Durrell Centenary is open to the public. ?All are welcome.
