The queer allure of art deco

November 25, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Join the V&A’s LGBTQ Working Group for an archival visit to the Prints and Drawings Study Room, exploring queer aesthetics in original Art Deco prints and designs in the Museum collection. The talk will delve into the work of stage and costume designers George Barbier, Leon Bakst, and Erté; photographers Cecil Beaton and Paul Tanqueray; and performers such as Nazimova, Nijinsky, and Valentino.

The talk will be followed by screenings of specially selected excerpts from key productions of the era including Camille (1921), Monsieur Beaucaire (1924), and The Hollywood Revue of 1929 in the British Galleries cinema room.
