Gurminder Sikand Tree Spirits 1991

Exhibition: The Goddess, the Deity & the Cyborg

Drawing from the works in The Women’s Art Collection as well as loans from public and private collections, the exhibition explores the enduring appeal of the goddess and traces how artists have adapted and even transformed the goddess into an ambiguous figure undefined by gender or even bodily form.

George Mallory: Magdalene to the Mountain

Thu 20 June - Sat 28 September

The Robert Cripps Gallery, Magdalene College

An exhibition reflecting on the life and career of George Mallory. The exhibition will draw on material held in the Magdalene College Archive to reflect on the life and career of George Mallory.

Starting by focusing on his time at Magdalene and covering his academic interests, his sporting achievements and his social and cultural pursuits. It will move on to highlight his experiences during WWI, drawing on the letters he exchanged with his wife Ruth during his service in France. This provides invaluable information into his character and also the social history of life at home and the part played by women.

The remainder of the exhibition looks at his time on the three expeditions to Everest and his lecture tour in the USA as told through his own letters, before commemorating the deaths of Mallory and Irvine on the mountain.

The exhibition will coincide with the conclusion of a major project to digitise all of Mallory’s correspondence allowing these letters to be made available for viewing online.

In association with The Foster Museum, Palo Alto, California, the archival material will be complemented by a series of watercolours of the north and eastern faces of Mt. Everest, and its northern approaches, by the en plein air artist Tony Foster.
