John Lennon was born on October the 9th 1940 to mark his 80th anniversary 80 artists have made a work inspired by Lennon’s life and work. John Lennon’s Not Dead will feature; drawings, paintings, photography, and collage. There will also be some specially made music and animation and some surprise performances. Because of social distancing there will be 4 Fab gatherings on the first 4 Fridays of October between 3pm and 10pm, rather than just one big opening party. Interested parties need to contact Sophie Parkin to make an appointment to see the show via eventbrite.

The exhibition’s curator explains the title of the exhibition:   

Harry Pye: “Some people believe you die 3 times. The first time is when your heart stops beating, the second time is when they put you in the ground, and the third time is when everyone stops saying your name.  I still turn to John Lennon when I need cheering up or feel in need of inspiration, and because I’m not the only one, I feel it's reasonable to say, John Lennon is not dead.”
