Big Read presents a star studded full 41 minute read of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s ‘Rime Of The Ancient Mariner’, featuring narration by the likes of Jeremy Irons, Tilda Swinton, Hilary Mantel, and Iggy Pop paired with artworks from Marina Abramovic, William Kentridge, Cornelia Parker, and Yinka Shonibare.
