Openings: Studies in Book Art is an open-access, online journal published annually by the College Book Art Association (CBAA). As a double-blind peer-reviewed journal, Openings is dedicated to scholarship on the book as medium, construct, work of art, and, more generally, the arts of the book.
We are delighted to invite you to celebrate the publication of our co-edited volume Modernism and the Spiritual in Russian Art: New Perspectives on Wednesday the 16th of May 2018 at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. The event will take place in the Terrace Room from 6pm-8pm.
This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art.
