DECORATING DISSIDENCE: MODERNISM, FEMINISM & THE ARTS
CALL FOR PAPERS
3rd-4th November 2017
Queen Mary, University of London
‘FOR ME, THERE IS NO GAP BETWEEN MY PAINTING AND MY SO-CALLED ‘DECORATIVE’ WORK. I NEVER CONSIDERED THE ‘MINOR ARTS’ TO BE ARTISTICALLY FRUSTRATING; ON THE CONTRARY, IT WAS AN EXTENSION OF MY ART.’
Decorating Dissidence takes an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to the work of female artists, designers, and writers to reassess the place of domestic art, craft, and the decorative in modernism.
