Join UCL Art Museum Film Club for a screening of the award-winning film Carrington, directed by Christopher Hampton. The event starts with an introduction to the UCL Art Museum and its collection of Dora Carrington drawings along with a chance to view original art works.

In 1912 Carrington not only won second prize for figure painting her work Female Figure Lying on her Back, but was also awarded a two-year Slade Scholarship. She went on to win first prizes for figure painting and anitque painting in 1913. The Slade was the first art school to allow female students to study from the life model from its foundation in 1871. Carrington is perhaps best known for her association with the Bloomsbury Group, mainly through her relationship with the writer Lytton Strachey and this is the focus for the film.

Wine and pop-corn will be provided.

Over 18's only.
