Gail-Nina resumes her series of triads of art lectures on linked topics in August, with three talks on The Bloke. When discussing the way people are shown in art, we often give less attention to the masculine figure. Gail-Nine redresses the balance, with three talks at the Lit & Phil considering a series of pin-ups from the Renaissance to the twentieth century.
In October, the Bloke will be followed by his female counterpart, the Tragic Heroine - no details yet, but some dates for your diary!
She also decamps to Woodhorn Museum, for a pair of summer lectures, starting with a Brief History of Collecting, exploring the history of collections, including the early 'Cabinets of Curiosities' that brought together weird and wonderful and mysterious items from around the world. What could follow that but a glance at one of Gail-Nina's own obsessive collections, with an examination of The Art of the Postcard?
Details of all of the above on the Talks and Lectures page.
On Wednesday November 7th, Gail-Nina marks the centenary of the Armistice with a talk at the Lit & Phil on The Angel of Mons and WW1 Mythology Revisited.
