Decorating Dissidence: Feminism, Modernism and the Arts approaches modernism as a longue durée to explore the enduring importance of female-identifying contributions to the arts as political protest throughout the twentieth century to now.
Last year, we held an exhibition and conference at Mile End Arts Pavilion and Queen Mary University of London (3-5th November). These events intervened in contemporary, interdisciplinary debates concerning the boundaries of modernism and the direction of feminist modernist studies.
Our follow-up symposium on ‘Modernism: Making, Place, and Protest’ at QMUL will be held on November 3rd 2018. We are also thrilled to be a part of this year’s Being Human Festival, and will run a day of workshops, talks, and presentations at the V&A Museum of Childhood on November 17th.
