Event description
A tour of 'Radical Women: Jessica Dismorr and her Contemporaries' at Pallant House Gallery with director Simon Martin.

About this Event

Please join us for a trip to Pallant House Gallery in Chichester to visit the exhibition Radical Women: Jessica Dismorr and her Contemporaries. The day will feature a special tour of the exhibition led by the gallery's director, Simon Martin. There will also be plenty of time to explore Pallant House's wonderful permanent collection together.

Radical Women explores the history of alliances and connections among the women artists of the early 20th century, centred on the pioneering work of Jessica Dismorr (1885 – 1939).

An artist at the forefront of the avant-garde in Britain – from her involvement with the Rhythm group during the late 1910s, to vorticism, post-war figuration and the abstraction of the 1930s – Dismorr has since, unjustly, fallen into obscurity.

The exhibition address how Dismorr and her female contemporaries engaged with modernist literature and radical politics through their art, including their contributions to campaigns for women’s suffrage and the anti-fascist organisations of the 1930s. The show is comprised of 80 works including paintings, sculptures, graphic art and archival materials.

We hope that this trip will provide DRN members with the opportunity to ask Simon and his curatorial staff questions about the research and development of the exhibition (why Dismorr, why now?), and to think about how thesis research can relate or translate into a public programme like theirs. Its also a chance to spend the day meeting with fellow PhD students and to discuss our work.

Gallery admission will be free and we are pleased to be able to cover UK travel costs for DRN members joining us on the trip. Any questions about travel logistics or timings, please don't hesitate to ask. You are welcome to organise your own travel to Chichester on the morning of the 29th provided you will be able to meet the group at the gallery for the start of the tour at 11am.
