This coming October 1st will be the sixtieth anniversary of the discovery of the cut-up. To honor the occasion, there will be a gathering at the Beat Hotel, 9, rue Git-le-coeur, Paris. Join Oliver Harris, Barry Miles, Frank Rynne, Yuri Zupancic — and bring your scissors. (And if you can’t make this, be sure to mark your calendars for the official Cut-Up @ 60 celebration in London and Paris in September 2020.)
