Art History in the Pub on Angela Carter


On the 30th of January, Marie Mulvey-Roberts and Fiona Robinson will be talking about their co-curated RWA exhibition, Strange Worlds: The Vision of Angela Carter, at The White Bear in Bristol as part of the Art History in the Pub series. According to the description of their talk on the Association of Art Historians website, they will “highlight different facets of a show that brings together contemporary and historical art to explore the work of Angela Carter […] Among other topics, Marie will reflect on the challenge of translating a writer’s work into art and Fiona on the relevance of the exhibition’s multi-faceted contemporary work”.

Art History in the Pub organises regular and informal talks around Bristol. As its organisers write:

“The talks are of general interest, and anyone is welcome to come along and listen and ask questions. Talks usually last for about 30 minutes, with a break for getting extra drinks, followed by general discussion. AHITP is always free of charge and open to everyone.”
