Description

Join art historian Christine Lindey as she introduces you to the Artists International Association and artistic responses to the Spanish Civil War (1936-39).

Christine Lindey has taught art history including may years as Associate Lecturer at the University of the Arts, London and at Birkbeck College, University of London. Her book Art in the Cold War: from Vladivostok to Kalamazoo (1990) pioneered the comparative study of Soviet and Western art. She is a visual arts critic for the Morning Star and her fifth book- Art for All: British Socially Committed Art of the 1940s and 1950s, will be published in the Autumn 2017. The Artists International Association, from its inception in 1933 forms an important part of this book, and her talk will explain its socio-political commitment including its anti-fascist art and activities in support of the Spanish Republic.

Part of our Banners for Spain! Spanish Civil War exhibition and programme, organised jointly by the Marx Memorial Library and Islington Museum. The exhibition runs from May 5th to July 8th 2017 at Islington Museum.
