MAGIC IN HISTORY, MAGIC IN ART

With Spellbound curators Dr Sophie Page (UCL) and Marina Wallace (Artakt)

Magic mirrors, unicorn horns, concealed corsets and pierced hearts. This lecture explores the extraordinary visual culture of magic over a thousand years, from medieval angels and demons to the persecution of witches and magical objects concealed in modern homes. This fascinating talk concludes  with a discussion of the relationship between contemporary art and magical thinking.
