Women Artists and the Modern Church in Britain

Women Artists and the Modern Church in Britain, a lecture by Ayla Lepine
Wednesday 4 April 2018, 6.30-8.30pm
The Gallery, 70 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EJ

From the turn of the 20th Century to the present, women have produced diverse and complex works of art for and in response to the Church. This talk explores the relationship between Christian sacred spaces, from vast and well-known cathedrals to rural chapels, and women artists in a period in which feminism, culture, and Christianity engaged in new dialogues. Artists including Winifred Knights, Elizabeth Frink, Enid Chadwick and Tracey Emin have encouraged the Church to include women and express sacramental theology in ways that continue to inspire and challenge.
Co-hosted by the Twentieth Century Society.

Dr Ayla Lepine is Visiting Fellow in Art History at the University of Essex and a trustee of Art and Christianity.
