AT THE FITZWILLIAM MUSEUM - AUTUMN 2018
VIRGINIA WOOLF - an exhibition inspired by her writings
Thursday 18 October or Tuesday 6 November
This major touring exhibition, featuring 80 female artists from 1854 to the present day, has at its heart the pioneering writings of novelist Virginia Woolf. It shows how her perspectives on feminism and creativity have remained relevant to women artists across time and includes work by Vanessa Bell, Eileen Agar, Gwen John and Winifred Nicholson as well as more contemporary artists.
This tour of the exhibition, led by Sarah Burles, will allow us to look closely at the works on display and discuss how they relate to Virginia Woolf's writings.
Cost: £30 including refreshments.
WAYS OF SEEING COURSE
Thursday 8, 15, 29 November and 6 December
This short course, based at the Fitzwilliam Museum, will look at how we 'read' objects and works of art. Each week will take a different theme as a starting point with which to explore the museum's extraordinary collections and discover how art and objects communicate ideas and meaning. The course will look at objects from different periods and cultures and will be led by Sarah Burles. Discussion, as well as careful observation, will be encouraged.
Cost: £100 for 4 weeks
