Stewart Home is an underground legend in the art world, both in the UK and the USA. After dabbling in rock journalism and music, he switched his attention to the art world in the eighties, and now writes novels as well as cultural commentary. His latest novel is 69 Things to do with a Dead Princess, other titles include Slow Death, Defiant Pose, and Confusion Incorporated: A Collection of Lies, Hoaxes & Hidden Truths.

Chaz Tempest lives in Hull. His first play Burst will premiere in London in March 2003. He also writes poetry, novels and screenplays. Founder of the Larkin’ Press, his book Trouble: The King’s Cross Journal will appear this autumn.

‘Call it juvenile post-modern, call it joke postmodern, call it anti-book…this is an author with a deranged, subversive grip on the literary form and an envious skill for describing harsh landscape sparingly and beautiful. Keep it unreal, Mr Home.’ John King The Times

RED Gallery Open Wednesday to Saturday 12 -4pm.

Since RED opened in 1997 it has provided Hull with an independent exhibition space and ‘laboratory’ for contemporary art. The gallery’s viewing audience has been growing steadily, and in between formal exhibitions the gallery offers the opportunity to local art students to organize and publicize their own shows. RED is a non-profit making initiative run collectively by a small group of local artists.
