PDT sponsor the drinks at the launch party of Gluck: Art & Identity
Published: 16 November 2017
The 20th century artist Gluck (1895-1978), now recognised as a trailblazer of gender fluidity, became known in the inter-war years for portraits, land- and seascapes and stage scenes, and in the 1930s for floral paintings - influenced by society florist Constance Spry with whom the artist was having a relationship.
The compelling exhibition was curated by Martin Pel, Curator of Fashion at Brighton Museum, Amy de la Haye, Professor of Dress History at London College of Fashion, UAL, and exhibition-maker Jeffrey Horsley, post-doctoral research fellow at London College of Fashion’s Centre for Fashion Curation - working with The Fine Art Society, Gluck’s gallery on London’s Bond Street.
The exhibition is part of the project ‘Wear it Out’, a partnership with The Centre for Fashion Curation at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts, London funded by a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant of £64,800. Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, the project will explore the cultural heritage of dress of LGBTQ communities in Sussex (1917 – 2017), looking at how dress is used to express identities and sexualities of individuals who identify as LGBTQ.
Reflective of PDT Solicitors diversity and inclusion policy, we are glad to be a part of one of the many Brighton Museum & Art Gallery’s programme of projects, exhibitions, displays and activities to celebrate and connect with LGBTQ lives, histories and culture.
