(Return Of The) Living Statues: Edwardian Nudes

Wednesday, September 11, 2013
5:30 pm

Venue: B&D Studios

This light-hearted lecture will investigate British cultural responses to the debate surrounding the phenomenon of ‘living statues’ – a popular music hall turn. We will look at paintings, sculptures and original photographic postcards and reference contemporary media sources. Prepare to be shocked and remember – ‘If it Moves, it’s Rude!’
