Plymouth Arts Centre: Alejandro Jodorowsky’s “Dune”: An Exhibition of a Film of a Book That Never Was

Following on from its success at The Drawing Room in 2009, this exhibition is touring to Plymouth Arts Centre, 2 April – 16 May.

An Exhibition of a Film of a Book That Never Was takes as its departure from the cult Chilean film-maker Alejandro Jodorowsky’s attempted 1976 adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic science fiction novel Dune. This exhibition includes production drawings made by Moebius, H R Giger and Chris Foss alongside commissioned work made in response by three international contemporary artists: Steven Claydon, Matthew Day Jackson and Vidya Gastaldon.
