Understanding the Unspoken Cost of Work in Victorian/Austerity Britain

  • 25 July 2019
  • 3:00 - 5:00pm
  • Stephen Lawrence Gallery

Join the artists Catherine HoffmanEmmanuelle Loiselle, Sarm Miccichè and ‘Home is not My Home’ by Dr Joyce Jiang, Tassia Kobylinska & The Voice of Domestic Workers, of the exhibition Keep the Door of My Lips, as they discuss the impact of ‘work’ on their own artistic practice and individual identity.

Chaired by Keep the Door of My Lips curators Professor Andrew King and Connie Gallagher this open discussion will follow the many topics that this exhibition covers; including, but not confined to, work, working conditions, the effects of work, escape from work, being without work, gender and work, ethnicity and work, and class and work.

Keep the Door of My Lips is an exhibition curated by Professor Andrew King and Connie Gallagher that explores the continuing influence of Victorian ideas about ‘work’. Displaying images from Victorian periodicals and trade magazines alongside research by Professor Andrew King and featured artworks, this exhibition – by turns beautiful, heroic, shocking, comforting, unsettling – wants to get us to think about what work really means for us.
