Overview

This one-day event celebrates the life and legacy of Dom Sylvester Houédard (1929–92), the Benedictine monk and concrete poet who was a pivotal figure in an international constellation of artists in the 1960s that included John Cage, Bob Cobbing, Ian Hamilton Finlay and Allen Ginsberg.

Dom Sylvester Houédard and the Cosmic Typewriter – a long-overdue homage to Houédard – features a creative symposium, open-mic session, archival display, film screening, book launch and performances of a selection of his poem scores.

Participants include Stephen Bann, Guy Brett, John Furnival, Lynda Morris, Rick Poynor, Jasia Reichardt, David Toop and Cerith Wyn Evans, among many others.

Booking is essential. Book online or call 020 7703 6120.  

Please note that this event is now sold out. 

Organised by Nicola Simpson and Occasional Papers, with the support of The Henry Moore Foundation.
