Part 2:  Bareback Museum: Life Drawing Performance Workshop Acts of Mercy

Exhibition 1 - 6 pm

Performances 2 - 4 pm

Artist and post-doctoral researcher Angela Hodgson-Teall will offer a life drawing workshop and

performance based on her response to the four Frederick Cayley Robinson Acts of Mercy murals (1915 - 1920) from the Middlesex Hospital, where Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, the first woman doctor in Britain studied, before being petitioned to leave by the male medical students. Angela was a medical student and junior doctor at the Middlesex  She was also there when the country’s first Aids ward was set up. The paintings influenced her deeply and were cherished by staff.

Using lines of her poems and poses from the paintings, Angela will examine what it means

to make actions within the world of health, tracing acts of mercy, pity and empathy from the scenes of orphans, animals, children, wounded soldiers and hospital staff of the first World War.
