The catalogue for exhibition Eyes For Blowing Up Bridges: Joining The Dots From The Situationist International To Malcolm McLaren is published on Friday (November 13).

With a specially-commissioned memoir of McLaren by his art-school friend Fred Vermorel, the 100-page catalogue contains an introduction by me, a foreword by John Hansard Gallery’s Ros Carter and Stephen Foster and an essay by co-curator David Thorp.

There are also images of the exhibits, many rare and not previously presented for public view.

The publication will be celebrated at an event at Southampton’s John Hansard Gallery on Friday evening, which will include a panel discussion with contributions from Barry Martin, who taught McLaren at Goldsmith’s art school in the late 60s, and Jane Tankard, senior lecturer at Westminster University.
