Ben Okri’s collaborates with painter Rosemary Clunie at The Royal Overseas League

Wednesday 13 March 2019

The exhibition looks at the link between Literature and Art with a focus on how the book “The Magic Lamp: Dreams of our Age” is a wonderful and creative collaboration between Art and Literature. The exhibition includes images from the book, some new paintings and some text based works. Extracts from the book guide the viewer through Over-Seas house, and give context to the work on display. At ROSL we have an important link to both Literature and Art, two artforms that are embraced and explored by Rosemary Clunie and Ben Okri.

Rosemary Clunie is a painter, printmaker and video artist, born in Scotland and living in Hampstead. She has exhibited at the World Economic Forum in Davos amongst other places.

Ben Okri OBE FRSL is a Nigerian-born poet and author. His work includes the Booker-Prize-winning The Famished Road, the first in a trilogy, and Starbook, as well as collections of poetry, short stories and essays.
