Outrageously Modern!

Outrageously Modern!

4 February 2012 - 7 October 2012 , 10:00 to 17:00
Wolfson Gallery

Avant Garde magazines that shocked Britain 1884-1922. Enter the world of late 19th century publishing and explore a range of ground breaking and, in some cases, notorious literary and art magazines.

Defying tradition and convention, these publications flaunted their modernity and sought to reinvent the magazine as a celebration of decadent art, unafraid to shock the public. Tracing the origins as well as the legacy of these outrageously modern publications, this exhibition will take you on a tour of magazine culture from Charles Dickens to Oscar Wilde and into the early 20th century avant-garde.
