An Artsfest Event

The Holy Family Album: the Vision of Angela Carter’ celebrates the life, work, visual imagination and influences of Angela Carter twenty five years after her death.

This event will bring together art, film and literature to explore the enduring impact Angela Carter — one of the most distinctive literary voices of the last 100 years – still has on the human imagination.

It will include a rare screening of The Holy Family Album, a film written and narrated by Carter that presents her controversial take on Christian iconography, which was broadcast for the first (and last) time in December 1991 on C4.

Dr Marie Mulvey-Roberts of UWE, who co-curated the RWA Strange Worlds Exhibition in Bristol, will introduce the film with a talk about the historic artworks that influenced Angela Carter’s writing, as well as her recurring themes of feminism, gothic mysticism, fairytales and fantasy.

Tickets: £3 / Free for students
