Douglas Coupland: Everywhere is Anywhere is Anything is Everything

Friday 26th September 2014 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

As the author of Generation X, Girlfriend in a Coma and Worst. Person. Ever., Douglas Coupland has spent more than twenty years describing and defining the postmodern human condition; with laser precision he has explored and satirized our world of consumerism and technology through his seminal novels and non-fiction essays. What you might not know, however, is that Coupland is also a trained artist and designer who has exhibited his multi-disciplinary work in numerous solo and group shows.

Having returned to this original passion in recent years, we are delighted to welcome Douglas Coupland to the Auditorium at Foyles to celebrate the first comprehensive monograph of his work as a visual artist, published to coincide with a major solo exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Vibrant and vital, Coupland's art is as phosphorescent as his writing and addresses many of the same themes, and this evening is a rare opportunity to meet the man behind the images - to see how his visual work relates to his literary output, to his perspective on popular culture, and not least to himself.

Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road

Tickets: £5 per person. Simply add the required number to the basket below.

Please note that no physical tickets will be issued; the email despatch confirmation you receive will be proof of your booking.
