Talk: Her-Story Of Art: A Brief Alternative History Of Giotto And The Arena Chapel
  • Theatre 2, Plymouth University

Save event

Giotto’s frescoes in the Arena Chapel stand at the beginning of any history of Renaissance art, and he is often called the ‘father’ of the western tradition of painting. But what happens if we look at the Chapel and its paintings from a different perspective? Who were the women who used this chapel, what did they see, and what did they think?

When History of Art becomes Her-story of Art, the results can be surprising.

Date: Tuesday 28 November

'Revolutions' season at Peninsula Arts

This year marks the centenary of the Russian Revolution; a period that still generates controversy. Such a tumultuous political time also heralded a revolution within art, music, theatre and film – unleashing a period of radical experimentation and innovation that had an enduring impact throughout the 20th century.

Taking 1917 as an example of a major turning point within society, the programme identifies a number of points across history and within the present where culture has undergone a major shift. The resulting programme might surprise you as to what we have chosen as being revolutionary and in some places may present a challenge, with previous radical ideas now being viewed as problematic from current perspectives.
