For Volcano Extravaganza 2013, Martin McGeown will present a lecture entitled ‘Out of Italy’. Operating under the various shades of the title, he will cover a range of topics including fencing and particularly the passing on of stolen goods.

Martin McGeown is co-director of Cabinet Gallery in London. Cabinet was begun in McGeown’s apartment in Brixton in 1992 after a period of work in the department store display trade. Merging this experience with an approach to poetry focused on the unpublishable, the combination of these interests remains the principle concerns of Cabinet.
