Poster Women: A Century of Art and Design

10:00am – 6:00pm
Free

You might walk past them without a second glance each day, but posters have been one of the most influential forms of advertising in the marketing world, and it’s time we celebrated the women involved. During the 20th and 21st centuries, some of the most recognisable designs were created by women including Dora Batty, Laure Knight, Mabel Lucie Atwell and Freda Lingstrom. At this exhibition, you can see over 150 original posters along with letters, books, ceramics and photographs. The posters include a fantastic variety of styles such as modernist, figurative and abstract as well as a wide selection of mediums. As well as the posters, you can learn about the lives, backstories and the designers who inspired the women as well as their impact on the artists who followed them. The exhibition will follow the chronological development and styles of women’s posters and their effect on London and highlight the role of London Transport in commissioning female talent.

Entry to the exhibition is free, but entry to the museum is required. While this is a tad high at £17.50 (£15 for concessions) – this allows entry to the museum for a full year so can easily be worth it! You can reduce the price to £16 and £13.50 respectively if you book your annual ticket online!

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
