Dates: 17 September–25 October 2009 | Location: The Drawing Room, London

The Drawing Room presents Alejandro Jodorowsky‘s ‘Dune’: An exhibition of a film of a book that never was, that takes as its departure point the cult Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky’s attempted 1976 adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic science fiction novel Dune. The 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.

The project is guest-curated by Tom Morton, Curator at The Hayward, London, Co-curator of The British Art Show 7 (2010 -11), and Contributing Editor, frieze magazine. The exhibition tours to Plymouth Arts Centre 3 April–16 May 2010.
