Laurie Lipton (previously featured here), my all-time favourite obsessive-compulsive pencilleuse and ingenious internet madwoman (I'm seriously considering releasing a book with some of her Facebook comments that are just too epic to be left hidden behind a login screen), is having a very short 3-day-only exhibition starting tomorrow at the University of London.

Taking place at the Institute for Germanic & Romance Studies, to be precise, the group show is part of the Carnival of Death - Perceptions of Death in Europe and the Americas conference for which application has sadly closed in early February already and no, I didn't get in either. If you are one of the lucky few who applied for it in time, you will have the great privilege to listen to Laurie speak of what she knows best: Death and decay. And maybe kittens. Who knows?

The group show is open to the public and free.

On show: Feb 24 - 26, 2011

Address: Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies, Jessel Room, Senate House South Block, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU, UK, email: igrs@sas.ac.uk, tel: 020 7862 8677 | Directions

Gallery hours: Thu & Fri: 9 AM - 6 PM, Sat: 10 AM - 5 PM
