2014: Kenneth Halliwell Collage

In 2014 Islington Heritage curated the exhibition Kenneth Halliwell: Collage, to showcase a newly acquired collage artwork. The piece, Untitled (No. 2), created by Kenneth Halliwell in 1966, was acquired with the aid of the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Between 7 February and 1 March 2014 Untitled (No.2) by Kenneth Halliwell went on display at the Islington Museum alongside several other works by the artist, as well as new collages by local residents inspired by the new acquisition.

The exhibition accompanying the artworks explores the life of Halliwell; from his own creative work with collage as well as the defaced public library book covers that he, alongside his partner Joe Orton, was infamously imprisoned under charges of malicious damage.
