Poets In Vogue — Exhibition

Poets in Vogue presents the fashion worlds and poetic work of seven women poets through a series of displays, including a skirt that belonged to Sylvia Plath.

Also on display is a reconstruction of Anne Sexton’s red ‘reading dress’, creative interpretations of Audre Lorde’s, Edith Sitwell’s and Stevie Smith’s signature looks, a fabric-adaptation of a poem by Gwendolyn Brooks and the clothes-performances of Theresa Hak Kyung Cha.

The exhibition is curated by Sophie Oliver, Sarah Parker and Gesa Werner, and is funded by the University of Liverpool and Loughborough University.

On loan from The Second Shelf, a feminist rare bookstore.
