'An act of creativity: Leonor Fini and the role of costume'

Presented By Rachael Grew, part of the Art History and Visual Culture Research Seminars 2016/17

About this event

Leonor Fini (1907-1996) placed transformation and metamorphosis at the core of her work and frequently expressed this through the act of dressing up. This paper will explore the ways in which dressing up creates links between Fini's art, design, and her own life, ultimately assessing the extent to which Fini uses costume to refuse a fixed identity and advocate ambiguity and flux instead.

This event is part of the Art History and Visual Culture seminar series 2016-17‌.
