In December we hosted a week long exhibition with South West London artist Arlo Parks. Live from the Boot Room, we displayed a collection of her unapologetic, literature-inspired vocals and never before-seen literature and tour photos.

An artist that’s changing the way we look at music, poetry and everything in between, Arlo kicked things off at our launch party where she gave a stripped-back performance of her confessional literature, spoken-word poetry and raw, relatable songwriting. Check out some images of the event below.

“My music has always been heavily informed by literature — it’s a core part of my identity as an artist. I’m so excited to be displaying my poetry for the first time in the Dr. Martens space — putting on an exhibition centred around spoken word has been something I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid.”
