As part of 'Dear Christine', artist Cathy Lomax will give a talk examining how Christine Keeler has been portrayed in film. The discussion will include a broader look at images of women on screen and how this connects with her own art practice.

About

Christine Keeler is just one of the many real women who have been depicted on film. All too often, salacious aspects of their lives are foregrounded and this overshadows a rounded portrait of who they are. In this talk, Cathy Lomax will look at how Keeler has been portrayed in the films Scandal (1989) and The Keeler Affair (1963) alongside a broader look at images of women on screen and how this connects with Lomax’s art practice. The talk will be illustrated with film clips.

Cathy Lomax is an artist and director of Transition Gallery, London. She is currently researching the female film star image for a PhD in Film Studies at Queen Mary University of London.

'Dear Christine' is curated by Fionn Wilson and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
