Online Panel Discussion: Formae Mutatae – A discussion on image, transformation and myth in Linderism

During Linderism we were delighted to host an online panel discussion looking at transformation and otherness through Linder’s mythic and classical references in her photomontages. Artist Linder Sterling was in conversation about her work with classicist Professor Katherine Harloe and curator Dr Amy Tobin, chaired by Alina Khakoo.

You can read a transcript of the panel discussion here.
