Mark the centenary of the Scottish poet at an exhibition on his visual poetry and his life as a gay writer.
Showcasing many rare works from the National Poetry Library collection, the exhibition features displays of Edwin Morgan works as large-scale graphics and sound, alongside publications and ephemera.
As part of the exhibition, we have commissioned new work from four LGBTQ+ poets, whose poems are available to view in the exhibition space.
You can also interact with a Morgan poem that has been reimagined as a digital game.
Born in 1920, Morgan was unique in the international concrete poetry movement for being prolific in many forms of poetry and for bringing warmth and humour to his visual work.
Come along to discover more about his unique vision as a poet and to see how a new generation of poets have reimagined his contribution to 20th- and 21st-century poetry.
