"The International Art Show for the End of World Hunger" was conceived as a protest on behalf of the 35,000 people who die d——ly through lack of food. The show features work by over 40 major artists, including Andy Warhol's ironic 1985 "Life Savers", a tube of sweets with the slogan "please do not lick this page". more follows > News updated Tues/Fri  new films 622 HOLIDAYS & DAY TRIPS IN WALES 591 New Movies Local Movies New Plays BSVs

Some succeed in communicating this better than others. It is hard to see the relevance, for example, of Richard Hamilton's Mother and Child, with its fat baby and middle class mum, but Marisol's wood sculpture with its sad little face of a boy "Boy With Empty Bowl" makes the point poignantly. A striking use of technology is Nam June Paik's Hungry Child, 13 video monitors showing news reels. more > News updated Tues/Fri  new films 622 New Movies Local Movies New Plays BSVs

Her children have grown up, her husband sees her as a doormat. She gets the chance to escape for a dream holiday to a sunsoaked Greek Island and agonises over whether or not to take the plunge. It's a hilarious as well as poignant tale. Collins enjoyed a sell out run in the West End with the play. more follows > Reviews Index 620 New Movies 622 New Movies Local Movies New Plays BSVs
