Mary Alexander

Looking beyond the mainstream, Mary shows how creative individuals shaping the concept of modernity in art, design, interiors, fashion and photography shed light on changing social and cultural issues. Her innovative digital imagery offers “a stroll along the new boulevards, calling into a cafe, nightclub, gallery, or a visit to the Opéra” accompanied by the “voices” of the time to recreate the sense of being there. Mary will bring her personal vintage postcard collection, fashion plates, advertisements and historic exhibition catalogues for your enjoyment.
