We recently hosted a gathering of Interfaith Matters Westminster Forum at Chelsea, and afterwards some of the members visited the exhibition ‘Astro-poems and vertical group exercises’ at Chelsea Space . This fascinating show focuses on Concrete poetry at Chelsea School of Art in the 1960’s, and members noted correspondences between the works on show and the calligraphic traditions of Buddhism and Islam, as well as the numerological tradition in Judaism.
