The Lounge comprised presentations, discussions, films and sound recordings, including research project Hear Us O Lord From Heaven Thy Dwelling Place, led by artist Alan Dunn that reimagined Lowry through the climate crisis; a recorded conversation with Alberto Rebollo from the annual Malcolm Lowry Colloquium held in Cuernavaca, Mexico; writer Helen Tookey’s reflection on Lowry’s ‘last notebook’, written in the Lake District; and a Lowry audience Q&A.
