About this event

‘The Beardsley “craze”, indeed – if “craze” there be – is really just beginning’.
H. C. Marillier (1899)

AB 2020: Beardsley Re-Viewed will take place on Aubrey Beardsley’s birthday (21 August) at St Bride Foundation. The conference aims to reclaim Aubrey Beardsley for the twenty-first century and revive the subversive and transformative potential of the Beardsleyesque. Combining academic panels with poetry readings and film screenings, we will explore responses to Beardsley’s work from a variety of disciplines, cultural locales, and across the arts.

We are curious about the metamorphoses of Beardsley’s imagery and styles in China, Lithuania, and Russia, and their resonance in the twentieth-century cinema and the twenty-first-century classrooms. We are most excited to present a series of creative responses to Beardsley, bringing to life the artist’s queer aesthetics, camp sensibility, and transgressive humour.

AB 2020: Beardsley Re-Viewed is generously supported by the Alessandra Wilson Fund. The event is free and open for all but online registration is required.
