Gluck: Art and Identity >>

  • University of the Arts 272 High Holborn Londen, England, WC1V 7EY United Kingdom (map)

This symposium will analyse the modern British artist Gluck’s life, art and dress from biographical, curatorial, material culture and art historical perspectives. It will explore an artist (1895-1978) who is now recognised as a role model in gender fluidity and identity, and a strong LGBTQ* presence in the UK socio-cultural scene of the 20th century. 

The symposium’s themes include biographical methods surrounding narratives and histories of non-gender-binary lives; curating dress and ephemera of people who express sexual and gendered identities through art and fashion; and developing new research methodologies to enhance understanding, collaboration and social cohesion through the arts, curation, fashion and literature.

The symposium coincide with the exhibition ‘Gluck: Art and Identity’ at Brighton Museum, and the launch of an accompanying publication (‘Gluck: Art and Identity’, Yale University Press, 2017),
