Katy Hessel Tour of the Nina Hamnett & Lisa Brice Exhibition at Charleston, Sussex
Updated: Nov 9
The Charleston Trust invited Katy Hessel, writer and founder of @thegreatwomenartists Instagram account, to take viewers on a video tour around the Nina Hamnett & Lisa Brice Exhibition at Charleston, Sussex. Nina Hamnett was a highly talented artist and part of the bohemian set in London in the 1920s. She was friends with artists such as Mark Gertler and Dora Carrington, and her work was collected by Roger Fry. However, she fell out of favour with the art world in the 1930s and was largely forgotten until her death in 1969. Katy explains how Hamnett's work is being rediscovered and reevaluated in light of recent interest in British Modernism. Katy also introduces the work of Lisa Brice, a contemporary artist who often references Hamnett in her own work. Katy ends her tour with a discussion of how both Hamnett and Brice challenge traditional ideas about femininity and female sexuality.
