TALK: Author & Artist Alexander Newley ‘Unaccompanied Minor’
Wednesday 6 December, 6:30pm, £10 in advance, £15 on the door Bookings
Author and artist Alexander Newley joins us at the gallery for a reading from his new autobiography ‘Unaccompanied Minor’, followed by a Q&A hosted by curator Catherine Milner. Refreshingly candid, Alexander’s unique, personal insight in to the ‘the monster called showbiz’ and life in a Hollywood A-list family promises to make for a fascinating evening.
Born with a famous name to an unhappy marriage, Alexander Newley is the son of the Hollywood stars Joan Collins and Anthony Newley. Their life was one of almost unparalleled privilege and glamour but under the glossy veneer there was trouble: infidelity, insecurity and emotional trauma. His childhood was nomadic and dysfunctional as he watched the disintegration of his parents’ marriage and yet he tells his true story with great humour and compassion, whilst also portraiting London and Hollywood’s golden age during the swinging sixties and the seventies.
Signed copies of Alexander’s new memoir, illustrated throughout with images of his paintings, will be available on the night.
