Come as Your Favourite Artist!

In 1979 New York artists Ana Mendieta and Mary Beth Edelson organised a dinner party in honour of Louise Bourgeois. Guests were invited to come dressed as their favourite woman artist from history.

We invite you to join us this LATE at an expanded dressing party, all genders and all artists welcome!

Don’t have a costume? Not to worry! Get creative in our workshop making costumes and masks.

Our Streets

We are delighted to be launching the Our Streets exhibition on the night, a project led by Cambridge University Students Union and Graduate Union sabbatical officers Christine Pungong and Claire Sosienski Smith. This mapping and archive project aims to present alternative narratives, histories and legacies of Cambridge Universities. They have asked women and non-binary students, staff and alumnae of the University of Cambridge to pin-point places in Cambridge that hold particular emotional significance. Head to the Ede room on the second floor and see a showcase of student work based around the theme of feminist liberation and inspired by archive research that the artists have conducted around Cambridge.

Dinner Party

This photo, from 1979, is of a London Dinner party, that took place at the same time as the one thrown in New York. At the back, with her hair up is artist Rose Garrard, whose work is currently on display in the Kettle’s Yard research space.
