Women Artists at the Slade
Wednesday 12 February
Doors open 6.45pm | 7pm
£12.50 | Friends £11.25

From its earliest days, the Slade School of Art admitted women students on equal terms to their male counterparts - much to the amusement, and even distaste, of many of their male peers. Art historical studies of the most famous of these women abound - Gwen John, Dame Laura Knight, Dora Corrington, and Gluck. Yet comparatively little exists about the women who came before them by barely a generation - Beatrice Offor, Mina Bergson and Annie Horniman. Dr Charlotte de Mille will reconstruct the experiences of these three friends and the possible inspiration they offered to those wishing to follow them.

Dr Charlotte de Mille curates the music programme for The Courtauld Gallery, where she works for the education department. With them she co-authored 'Animating Art History', a joint initiative with Central Saint Martins and the University of the Creative Arts, which was longlisted for a Clore Award in Museum Learning.

Charlotte received her doctorate from The Courtauld Institute of Art in 2009. She has taught at The Courtauld Institute of Art, and the universities of Sussex, Bristol and St Andrews. She is also a freelance curator and museum educator. In 2018 she was Curatorial Consultant for the Supreme Court Arts Trust, UK. She is currently a Mellon Centre Mid-Career Fellow for 2019-20.
