20th century culture is liberally spread with rock casualties like Hendrix, Morrison and Cobain, looking like they were on a one-way route to oblivion - but they can’t all have been feckless wasters. September’s Art Decades sifts through the wreckage to see who just might have been imbued with the spirit of Romanticism and Bohemianism a la Rimbaud, Wilde and Crowley.

Booking soon.
