People who have saved this event:


Grace Pailthorpe and Reuben Mednikoff wrote poetry ‘automatically’, and later analysed what they had produced. This reading group will compare their published and unpublished poetic experiments with those of other surrealist and modernist writers.


A Tale of Mother’s Bones tells the remarkable story of a unique artistic and personal collaboration. After meeting at a party in 1935, Dr. Grace Pailthorpe (1883–1971), a trained surgeon, and Reuben Mednikoff (1906–1972), an artist and designer, began collaborating on a project that would bring together art, writing and psychoanalysis in an attempt to create a better society.
