Gustav Metzger - In King’s Lynn

Gustav Metzger was an internationally renowned artist who influenced a generation. His admirers included Peter Townsend of The Who, the artist Yoko Ono, and Hans Ulrich Obrist, director of the Serpentine Gallery in London. He was a life-long peace activist with a revolutionary art agenda, who campaigned on environmental issues and against nuclear weapons. He invented Auto-Destructive Art and was an early advocate of creative exchange between art and science.

He lived and worked in King’s Lynn for almost ten years, during which time he campaigned against the North End clearances, and set up a local branch of CND. In 1957, as part of the King’s Lynn Arts Festival, he organized an exhibition of sacred relics from churches around East Anglia that had been mutilated and defaced during the English Reformation. That exhibition marked the beginning of his interest in the relationship between destruction and creation, and he made his first auto-destructive art work, painting with acid onto nylon, in King’s Lynn.

Featuring work from the aritist’s time in King’s Lynn and associated public engagement activity.

Exhibitions in the Fermoy Gallery and Red Barn.

Please note: open weekends 29 & 30 June, 6 & 7 July, then daily 13 July - 3 August
