‘New Eyes Each Year’ finally came to the end of its highly successful run on Sunday 1st October. During the course of 13 weeks a total of 11,890 people visited the exhibition and the responses they left behind were overwhelmingly positive.
Brilliantly curated by Anna Farthing, the exhibition offered a new and exciting take on Philip Larkin based on the everyday objects with which he surrounded himself. It generated fresh interest in Larkin for many who already knew something about his life and also helped to stimulate and engage a lot of people who were getting to know Larkin for the first time.
A full review of the exhibition will appear in the next edition of About Larkin
