National Portrait Gallery, Picture The Poet

02 May 2015 - 02 Aug 2015

Discover the faces of poets working today, including Benjamin Zephaniah, Simon Armitage and Carol Ann Duffy, in this touring exhibition from the National Portrait Gallery.

Picture the Poet is an exhibition of high quality photographs of living poets touring to six regional venues.

The exhibition project has been developed by the National Portrait Gallery working in collaboration with the National Literacy Trust and Apples and Snakes to build a targeted learning and participation programme at each regional venue.

In addition to this amazing exhibition the Usher Gallery will be hosting a live event to compliment the show: Picture the Poet Live. This evening of words and music featuring poets, comics, and music will be on the 24th July. Click here to find out more about the event.
