In Conversation with Jennifer Higgie

We are delighted to welcome acclaimed writer and critic Jennifer Higgie for a talk and discussion touching upon ideas in her forthcoming publication, “The Other Side: Women, Art and the Spirit World” –  a book about the rise of 19th century spiritualism, its impact on women’s creative agency and impact on modernism. She will also touch upon her celebrated book “The Mirror and the Palette: Rebellion, Revolution and Resilience: 500 Years of Women’s Self-Portraits”, released in 2021.
