THE HANOVER GALLERY & QUEER REPRESENTATION

I was so pleased to be selected to present my paper on The Hanover Gallery & Queer Representation as part of a session co-organised by Abi Shapiro of the Hepworth Wakefield, and Sarah Turner of the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies on British Art, on Female* Art Dealers in Mid 20th Century Britain.

RADICAL FEMALE ROLE-MODELS: PIONEERING GALLERISTS ERICA BRAUSEN AND MUTTER EY

Refugee Art Dealers in Britain: half-day conference co-organized by Sotheby’s Institute of Art and TIAMSA, The International Art Market Studies Association

For the Refugee Art Dealers in Britain conference, I delivered a paper on the idea of Johanna 'Mutter' Ey as an outsider role-model for the Hanover Gallery's pioneering gallerist Erica Brausen.

The paper examined several key areas of similarity between Ey and Brausen: first, the idea they shared of seeking an artistic refuge from fascism in Palma de Mallorca; second, the decision they took to fight for success despite being ‘outsider’; and third, the choice they made to embrace and promote the avant-garde.
