Printing a modern world: commercial graphics in the 1930sUntil 19 August 2018
Distinctive examples of small commercial ‘jobs’ from British, European and American graphic designers reveal the daily lives of ordinary people during a time of rapid change and technological innovation.
Biting Wit and Brazen Folly: British Satirical Prints, 1780s–1830sUntil 22 August 2018
Printed satirical caricatures were inescapable in London during the 1700s and 1800s. Often lighthearted and cheeky upon first glance, the images could also be mulled over and picked apart at leisure. A bawdy scene or grotesque facial expression instantly amused, while closer study revealed deeper literary or political references. Whether a fashionable dandy or a poor chimney sweep, no one escaped the scrutiny of caricaturists.
This exhibition reveals the widespread appeal of caricature in Georgian England and demonstrates the ways in which such images teased and provoked audiences. Featuring over sixty brightly coloured etchings from the Museum’s large collection of British satirical prints, it presents images of the everyday with a riot of color and a roar of laughter.
At Last! Votes for WomenUntil 31 August 2018
Only 40% of women got the vote in 1918. Working class women and under 30s had to wait another 10 years.
This exhibition features archive items and objects from the Women's Library collection – including three banners, sashes, badges and much more – to show the campaign methods of the three main groups for women’s suffrage, the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies (NUWSS) and the Women’s Freedom League (WFL).
It concentrates on the last (and often bitter) years of the long campaign of the struggle for women's right to vote from 1908 - 1914, with the inclusion of prison diaries and leaflets detailing tactics, such as 'rushing' the House of Commons.
