We are delighted to announce the launch event for Ithell Colquhoun’s Decad of Intelligence, host by The Slade School of Fine Art, London. It’s something of an historic return for Colquhoun, who studied art at the Slade in the late 1920s. The event will be held in the Slade Research Centre Studios in Woburn Square; a vast and visceral working space secreted above the Warburg Institute.
The evening will comprise of a short presentation from Dr Amy Hale, outlining Colquhoun’s life and work. This will be followed by a complete reading of Colquhoun’s evocative and poetic text for Decad of Intelligence from ten artist-practitioner women. Colquhoun’s extraordinary images will provide a projected backdrop. This event represents the first public reading and performance of this important magical text.
