Queering St Ives –  talk for The Friends of the Glynn Vivian Gallery, Swansea

Wednesday October 18th 2017 at 6.30pm

From the press release:
Dr. Ian Massey will discuss his research on the hitherto unexplored queer history of St Ives. Central to his talk is the sculptor John Milne (1931-1978), who lived in St Ives from 1952, working initially as an assistant to Barbara Hepworth before setting up his own studio. Milne’s house ‘Trewyn’ became a meeting place for British and international artists, actors and writers. Within his talk Ian will read extracts from privately held letters and journals by Milne and members of his circle, including the artists Francis Bacon and Keith Vaughan.
