Meeting 4: "Slade Women Artists; or How to Curate Your Own Exhibition for 2018", a day-long workshop
Tuesday 9 May 2017, 10am to 5pm
UCL Art Museum, London
Members of the British Women Artists 1750-1950 BAN Sub Group are invited to participate in a research workshop organized by UCL Art Museum. The aim is to help curate an exhibition on Slade Women Artists for display in 2018, the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, an important milestone for women’s suffrage.
UCL Art Museum asks the Sub Group to work in an advisory capacity on this research strand, as a focused aspect of Spotlight on the Slade, a Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art funded project to increase access to this historically significant archive of prize-winning student art. We are particularly interested in capturing specialist knowledge in regards to the women artists represented in the Slade Collections, to build a greater historical picture of the artists, their contemporaries and their overall experience at the Slade. We are also enlisting help in recovering the identity of many now forgotten artists, plus any hidden narratives underpinning their works.
