Artists for Spain

Art Historian Christine Lindey on the Artists International Association and artistic responses to the War, including Lawrence Bradshaw and Julian Otto Trevelyan

Christine Lindey has taught art history including may years as Associate Lecturer at the University of the Arts, London and at Birkbeck College, University of London.

Her book Art in the Cold War: from Vladivostok to Kalamazoo (1990) pioneered the comparative study of Soviet and Western art. She is a visual arts critic for the Morning Star and her  fifth book- Art for All: British Socially Committed Art of the 1940s and 1950s,  will be published in  the Autumn 2017. The Artists International Association, from its inception in 1933 forms an important part of this book, and her  talk will explain its socio-political commitment including its anti-fascist art and activities in support of the Spanish Republic.

This talk is part of MML's joint programme with Islington Museum where our collaborative exhibition 'Banners for Spain' will be shown 5 May-8 July.

The exhibition showcases six newly conserved banners for Aid Spain, highlights from the Marx Memorial Library's archives and stories of the Islington International Brigaders.
