Not Without My Ghosts curator Simon Grant leads an online panel discussion with art historian and expert on Surrealism, Professor Dawn Ades; exhibition artist Olivia Plender; and curator and archivist at the College of Psychic Studies, Vivienne Roberts.

The Unseen & the Ghostly: female legacies of Spiritualism & Surrealism will act as an introduction to the exhibition, whilst uncovering how female artists have been key to the development of mediumistic art practices, from the early pioneers of Spiritualist art Georgiana Houghton and Anna Mary Howitt, to the groundbreaking Surrealist works of Ithell Colquhoun and Grace Pailthorpe, as well as showing how contemporary female artists continue to engage with ideas of the supernatural, the subconscious and the otherworldly. The talk will examine key works, discussing both the varied techniques employed and revealing how these were shaped by the context of the times of their making.

This online panel talk will be hosted live on Zoom at 6:30pm, Thur 1st Oct.

Olivia Plender's work focuses on national identities, histories and myth making; she has a particular interest in the history of spiritualism related to feminism and cultural histories. She has exhibited internationally: solo exhibitions include: Tensta Konsthall (2019); Maureen Paley Gallery, London (2016); MK Gallery, Milton Keynes, Arnolfini, Bristol; and CCA, Glasgow (2012/13).
