Deanna Petherbridge: Misogyny and Witches Event at the ICA


Misogyny: Witches and Wicked Bodies

18 Mar 2015, 3:00 pm, Cinema 1, ICA

Following on from Deanna Petherbridge’s exhibition ‘Witches and Wicked Bodies,’ which ran at both the British Museum and the Scottish National Museum, the ICA hosts a discussion with Petherbridge, Lynne Segal, Alexandra Kokoli, and Katy Deepwell.

“This talk aims to discuss this exhibition’s presentation of misogyny as it has been revisited, restructured and represented throughout different periods of Western art history, through the persistence of potent and disturbing images of hideous old hags and desirable young sirens.

The respondents will then introduce questions about the representation of older women in art, culture and society in the past and present and look at how different approaches within feminism have taken the figure of the witch and attempted to transform it.”

Petherbridge’s ‘Witches and Wicked Bodies’ exhibition catalogue can be purchased here.
