Free Exhibition: Madam B at the Lethaby Gallery

2 March 2019 @ 11:00 am - 15 April 2019 @ 6:00 pm

- Free
Madame B at the Lethaby Gallery

Visit Central Saint Martin’s Lethaby Gallery for an immersive video installation which deconstructs and recontextualises Gustave Flaubert’s novel Madame Bovary. 

Until 15 April, Madame B is an immersive video installation which examines the link between capitalism and romance in relation to Gustave Flaubert’s 1856 novel Madame Bovary. It is a collaboration between Dutch cultural theorist and video artist Mieke Bal and British video and performance artist Michelle Williams Gamaker. The project is hosted and curated by Michaela Giebelhausen and Alison Green, Course Leaders of BA Culture, Criticism and Curation and MA Culture, Criticism and Curation.

Working anachronistically to highlight the novel’s shocking contemporaneity, Madame B opens up historical and contemporary connections between economics and romantic love, desire, consumption and loneliness. Through an immersive video experience, the exhibition explores how these factors have persisted over the 150 years since Flaubert’s novel was published.

Opening times

Tuesday to Friday: 11am–6pm
Saturday: 12–5pm
