New photography exhibit in England

University Campus Suffolk has announced a new exhibit of photographs by Gareth McConnell, inspired by Robert Anton Wilson's book, Sex, Drugs and Magick.

"Gareth’s exhibition is inspired by the writer Robert Anton Wilson’s controversial 1987 book ‘Sex, Drugs and Magick’ which is considered a scholarly appraisal of both historical and modern use and misuse of drugs in conjunction with sex and occult practices.

"Appropriating the title of Robert Anton Wilson’s counterculture classic, Gareth McConnell revisits and reworks his accumulated photographic archive in a low fidelity meditation on youth, hedonism and escape. He takes as his starting point the heavily mythologised status of Ibiza as a key ingredient in the ‘second summer of love’ and of the acid house movement and ecstasy culture that followed."
