Join us for a talk by Dr Jonathan Black on the graphic designer Hans Schleger.

During the Second World War, he designed many posters for London Transport, the Ministry of Food and the GPO.

Curated by the all-women team behind the Square Gallery London, a unifying visual theme of the often gendered colour pink runs through the exhibition. By incorporating a range of media including neon lighting and interactive textile art, the work on display seeks to represent the physical, the mental, and the conceptual forms of the feminine.
