  4. "A Succession of Masks: Batman and the Sexual Revolution" featuring VMFA Speaker on the Arts Christopher Irving

    June 1, 2018, 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM @ Suffolk Art Gallery

    In 1954, Batman and Robin were "outed" as closet homosexuals, an accusation that caused the comic's creators to skirt sexuality in the Batman comics. This presentation by Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (FMFA) Speaker Christopher Irving parallels their plight against the backdrop of gay rights, and women's lib, from the late 1930s through the 1970s. Subjects covered include the communist witch hunt, the Batman TV show, pop art and camp, the sexually chaotic Batwoman of the Eisenhower era and the liberated Batgirl of the 1960s.
