The subversive millinery: Marie- Antoinette and the revolutionaries


UCL Art Museum | Wilkins Building (link Map)
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: £5
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

For Revolutionaries in late eighteenth century France, Marie-Antoinette epitomized the extravagance and corruption of an unequal society. However, these associations have made her a potentially subversive symbol in her own right embodying the disruptive possibilities of excess and feminine power. Combining cultural history and craft workshop, participants will explore the Revolution Under a King exhibition, discuss the myth of Marie-Antoinette with Dr Sue Walker and create Marie-Antoinette inspired headpieces.
