Celebrate International Women's Day by exploring the works of Dorothy Mead.
"What are we but meat?" is inspired by seven works by Dorothy Mead that are in the A David Bomberg Legacy - The Sarah Rose Collection.
Specifically: "Reclining Nude", "Standing Female Figure", "Transvestite", "Reclining Figure(Resting Model)", "Reclining Figure", "Reclining Nude", and "Acrobat". They are all available in the gallery's online collection.
It is further inspired by a perspective on Dorothy Mead's self portrait written by Ruth Busby exploring the blurring of features in Mead's works in relation to identity, representation, and gender.
These works are explored through a movement performance by Demsey Legrand and Mai Tassinari with an ambient sound piece created by London South Bank University Sound Design student Mattia Turchetti.
The performance will be followed by a talk where Dorothy Mead is the starting point.
