In 1977, Cooper co-founded The Feminist Improvising Group (FIG) with Scottish singer Maggie Nicols.

Their pioneering and experimental act focused on female experience and the mundane through music and comedy.

Freedom From Within The Frame

 

Exhibition   UNTIL 26 APRIL |  WINDOW GALLERY
It’s the year 1947, and a significant shift has started within the Central School of Arts and Crafts (which is now Central Saint Martins); William Johnstone, a Scottish, abstract painter-turned-educator, has become Principal. Recruiting artists such as Eduardo Paolozzi and Richard Hamilton to teach, a level of esteem and creativity is brought to the school, reimagining the notion of an art education.

Curated by MA CCC students, Freedom From Within The Frame will demonstrate the aesthetic transitions that took place during this period and its lasting impact on the College.
