Event description
Feminist Art History lecture on the Male Gaze within a fashion Concept Store, immersive experience: Fashion+ Art

About this Event

For Frieze Art Fair, immersive retail experience store Lone Design Club has teamed up with The Big Art Herstory Project and the London Drawing School to create two amazing events to get you fully involved in the world of fashion and art.

Join us in Fitzrovia this October for an unusual experience.

If every image is worth a thousand words, then the history of art is awash with silenced, naked women. Displayed like trophies, mute and objectified, the nudes of the western world have long been a symbol of the power of a patriarchal world.

Through this lecture students will be offered a feminist perspective on the infamous concept of ‘the male gaze’ with reference to some of the most famous masterpieces of all time, we will explore the nuance of the naked and the nude and how the 'male gaze' has permeated notions of female sexuality in our collective consciousness.

Including introductions to everything from John Berger to Laura Mulvey, feminist film theory, witchcraft, women's suffrage and the roles of women in the bible, this is a fantastic entry-lecture into the world of BAHP that appeals to everyone from English-Literature enthusiasts to those interested in Gender Politics and the Fine Arts, Male or Female, and suitable for all levels.
