The Lenkiewicz Foundation presents two events on the evening of Thursday 29th September at St Saviours Hall, Plymouth which reflect on the relationship between the artist Robert Lenkiewicz and his friend and muse Edwin Mackenzie, also known as Diogenes.
These events accompany ‘The Diogenes Show’, an exhibition of a number of original studies by Lenkiewicz of his friend, together with photographs, newspaper clippings, and archive material.
6.00 pm -- Rachael Gomery, TLF exhibitions officer, will present a slideshow introduction 'Lenkiewicz and Diogenes: remember you will die'.
