Summary

This biographic exhibition at the University of Hull, where Larkin spent three decades as Librarian, lifts the lid on the life of one of Hull’s most influential creatives.

Featuring his love of music, unseen letters, photography and personal possessions, Larkin: New Eyes Each Year explores connections between Larkin’s life and work in Hull and the writing that led to him being described as Britain’s best loved poet.

The wider exhibition programme includes artists’ responses to Larkin’s life and work, and questions about how we choose to present ourselves now.

Curated by Anna Farthing.

Please note the timings of the exhibition are:

Monday – Friday: 10am – 7pm
Saturday – Sunday: 10am – 5pm.

We are also running Larkin tours of the office daily:

Monday – Friday: 11am
Saturday & Sunday: 11am & 2pm

The exhibition will close at 5pm on Monday 28 August.

There will be a BSL Interpreted tour of the exhibition on 12 July at 3pm,
