GLUCK: ART AND IDENTITY EXHIBITION AT BRIGHTON MUSEUM from November 17 2017, curated by Amy de la Haye and Martin Pel; consultant Elizabeth Wilson, Diana Souhami, Jeff Horsley, Gill Clarke, Andrew Macintosh and Simon Martin . A book of the same name edited by Amy de la Haye and Martin Pel will appear to coincide with the exhibition’s opening. It contains articles by the above contributors.
Gluck was a successful painter, primarily during the period between the two world wars. She was a reknowned portraitist and also painted landscapes and flower paintings. She was a cross dressing lesbian whose struggled with identity seem especially relevant today. The exhibition is based on clothes and other artefacts.
