Beyond Dickens Exhibtion

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Ros was the organiser and curator of an artists' book exhibition "Beyond Dickens".

Throughout 2012 there had been a number of international and national events to mark this occasion, but this exhibition aimed to highlight the impact of Dickens as an inspiration for new creative works by contemporary artists.

The exhibition was an international response to produce artists’ books inspired by the work of Charles Dickens or one of his contemporaries. The books drew on the universality of Dickens’ themes, including: freedom love, social commentary, humour, industrialisation politics and morals, and marked him as a relevant influence for contemporary creative practitioners.

The exhibition was part of Portsmouth’s Dickens’ Bicentenary and Cultural Olympiad Celebrations.

It was supported by University of Portsmouth and Portsmouth City Council.
