Explore the lives of Sylvia Plath and Marlene Ditrich

Explore the lives of Sylvia Plath and Marlene Dietrich at the National Portrait Gallery

“One Life: Sylvia Plath” is the first exploration of the poet and writer’s life in an art and history museum. The exhibition reveals how Plath shaped her identity visually as she came of age as a writer in the 1950s. Visitors will get a look into Plath’s personal life and her dualistic nature she explained as her “brown-haired” and “platinum” personalities.

We’ll go for coffee and discussion afterwards to the Kogod Courtyard Café in the National Portrait Gallery.
