Modern Couples

Congratulations to Dr Red Chidgey whose recent talk at the Barbican Art Gallery on ‘Collaboration and Social Change’ was sold out. The talk was held in relation to the Barbican’s exhibition Modern Couples: Art, Intimacy and the Avant-garde, and aimed to throw new light on the inner workings of creative collaboration. Red guided the audience through artworks and intimate letters from a range of artists including Hannah Höch, Virginia Woolf, and Frida Kahlo. Amongst the themes raised were the thorny question of working rituals and artistic recognition; feminist disruptions of traditional ideas of womanhood; and queer invitations to re-think the creative couple beyond the human.
