Miss Clara: In Depth

Saturday 15 January 2022, 2 – 4pm

Free, online via Zoom; booking essential

Join exhibition curator Robert Wenley and catalogue writers Professor Helen Cowie and Dr Samuel Shaw as they present their contributions to Miss Clara and the Celebrity Beast in Art, 1500 – 1860.

This in-depth research, in support of the exhibition publication, will explore themes and satellite conversations such as the definitions of a ‘celebrity beast’, their representation in art and imagery, and the development of menageries and zoos within colonialism and empire.

Hosted as a zoom webinar, there will be an exhibition introduction and a Q&A.

The Miss Clara exhibition catalogue is available to buy from reception, or online here.

Donations are welcome and can be made during the booking process and via contactless Goodbox stations in the Barber. Your donations support our learning programmes and paid internships for early-career professionals. Thank you.
