Behind the Glass: New Dawn in Parliament

April 19, 2018 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Behind the Glass: April

Please join us for Behind the Glass on April 19, when Mary Branson will discuss the artistic commission she created for the Houses of Parliament in London, in honor of the 150th anniversary of the petition calling for women’s suffrage in England.

After her appointment as Parliament’s artist-in-residence in 2014, Branson studied the archives of the women’s suffrage movement in England. Inspired by the scroll-like appearance of the rolled Acts of Parliament, she created New Dawn, a work composed of individual back-lit glass roundels with the appearance of scrolls. New Dawn is placed prominently along a public route through the Palace of Westminster, and was unveiled in 2016.
