Dr Michael White, Reader in Art History at the University of York and co-curator of Van Doesburg and the International Avant-Garde exhibition at Tate Modern in 2010, will present on Moss’s work in a European context discussing her relationships with Piet Mondrian and other prominent members of the European avant-garde.
Maria Christoforidou, Associate Lecturer at Plymouth University and independent curator, will look at gender in art historical practises and the value of revisiting forgotten female artists in a contemporary context through photographic portraits of Marlow Moss, Claude Cahun, Barbara Hepworth and Hélène Vanel.
