Open Courtauld Hour

Open Courtauld Hour: Women Artists

Open Courtauld Hour – The Courtauld Institute of Art’s brand new weekly series of Art historical mini-festivals – is here!

Our fourth Open Courtauld Hour will focus on Women Artists, addressing gender imbalance in the art world, expanding on notions of public and private and reinserting women of all backgrounds back into the canon of art history.

Hosting the evening will be Katy Hessel of @thegreatwomenartists — an account and podcast series which celebrates women on a daily basis. She will be joined by Jo Applin (The Courtauld Institute of Art) who will highlight her vast research into contemporary women artists, Ketty Gottardo (Martin Halusa Curator of Drawings at the Courtauld Institute of Art) who will be virtually opening up our object study room and allowing the audience to see, close-up, a number of works by Helen Saunders and other academics and curators focusing on women artists. Stuart Hall Foundation Scholarship Jade Montserrat. Jade will be reclaiming women’s narrative through a one-off poetic take on Paul Gauguin’s Te Rerioa.

The series will touch on pertinent issues — exploring how artists and galleries are adapting to the digital world, showcasing art historical research in light of this global pandemic and providing a platform for creative practice lockdown. These episodes will focus on four themes impacting the arts today. This will range from ‘Art in Isolation’, ‘Art, Care and the NHS’, ‘The Future of Art History’ to ‘Women Artists’.

This weekly online event will take place from wherever you, via zoom, will give you time to clap for our carers — the event launching on Thursday the 30th of April, 20.05 – 21.00.
