Abstract

A series of commissioned artworks (4) made with Olivia Plender in response to materials in the Women's Library, specifically recovering and re-historicising the suffragette as a militant artist and with a particular emphasis on collating existing records of suffragette attacks on art works.

We produced:

  • A video "The Argument of the Broken Window Pane" (a famous speech in court by Emmeline Pankhurst) as a quasi casting tape (to evoke the absence of any acknowledgement of the Suffragette contribution to history, social freedom of campaign artistry by the movie industry).
  • A chapbook "The Suffragette as Militant Artist" (free to take away, contains the first comprehensive listing of suffragette attacks on works of art)
  • Letter to Tate Britain about the pioneering work of Sylvia Pankhurst and advising that her paintings be incorporated into their British History collection, displayed alongside an original drawing by the artist from the archives.
  • 2 x staged photographs "The Inaugural Meeting of the Emily Davison Lodge"

This collaborative research and the production of related art works is being continued under the auspices of the Emily Davison Lodge
