Talk 'Socially committed art from the '30s to the Cold War' - Working Class Movement Library - Salford

Christine Lindey talk 'Art for all: socially committed art from the '30s to the Cold War'.An illustrated talk by art historian Christine Lindey on her recent book which explores a vein of British art which kept alive the idea of socially committed and widely understandable art. Art for All reveals a forgotten or marginalised area of 20th century British art. Christine's book provides a vivid understanding of the political and aesthetic contexts that turned a wide variety of individuals into socially committed artists. It also examines the artist’s circumstances of production and patronage, and explains why these often handicapped those artists who were swimming against the current of their times.This talk is part of the Invisible Histories series. Free; all welcome.
