I’m excited to announce that I’ll be launching ‘Freedom of Movement: the bike, bloomer and female cyclist in late nineteenth Britain’ at Look Mum No Hands on June 13th. It’s a while away but it might feature some combination of talks, fab women in vintage cycling frocks, automatons, Victorian cycling portrait booth, live screen printing of radical cycling suffragette slogans, music, bikes, rides and beer. Put it in your diary!
Last time I had an event at Look Mum No Hands (bike /cafe/workshop on Old Street), it looked a bit like this. (My photography exhibition happened to coincide with the Great British Bunting Bunt-off or some such, which made the space look even cooler).
It involved a lot of cake. And cycling. The exhibition was distributed across five different bikes shops/cafes in London with viewers encouraged to cycle between locations in order to see the show. The launch ride ended with beer and cake at LMNH.
