Join us to commune with the Spirit of Slade Ladies Past over the course of this immersive evening event developed in collaboration with artist Tai Shani and UCL researchers.


Amongst the cohort of Slade’s class of 1918, many had a keen interest in spiritualism and the occult. The context of WW1 appear to mark a particular turn to such practices as a means for those who lost loved ones to grieve and process the shock of the sudden end of lives and relationship brought on by the war. 
As the Prize & Prejudice exhibition highlights, that most of the artists whose work was recognized by the prize system that year are now unknown, their voices forgotten, we turn to spiritualism as a means to revive their voices and to imagine what they would tell us about their experience of these tumultuous times.
