Lindsay Cooper: The Art of Rebellion


In 1977, Cooper co-founded The Feminist Improvising Group (FIG) with Scottish singer Maggie Nicols. FIG’s debut performance was at the “Music for Socialism” festival at the Almost Free Theatre in Soho, London in October 1977. Their pioneering and experimental act focused on female experience and the mundane through music and comedy.

Lindsay Cooper: The Art of Rebellion is an exhibition curated by Central Saint Martins MA students of the Criticism, Curation and Culture course. The exhibit includes never seen before archive material donated to University of the Arts London. Find out more.
