The exhibition is curated by Mireille Bourgeois, independent curator (Halifax), and Chantal Molleur, curator and co-founder of White Frame (Basel, Switzerland).
The Beat Generation on Screen
Two recent motion picture versions of Jack Kerouac novels point to a renewed interest in the Beat Generation in popular culture. This film retrospective matches documentaries with fictional features to try to get a fix on one of America’s last great literary movements and how its legacy is now seen in both memory and imagination.
