Virginia Woolf: An exhibition inspired by her writings
26 May – 16 September 2018
Discover how the writings of celebrated author Virginia Woolf has influenced modern and contemporary art.
The writer of Orlando, To the Lighthouse and The Waves has proven a lasting influence beyond the literary sphere, and this exhibition uses her work as a prism through which to explore feminist perspectives on landscape, domesticity and identity in modern and contemporary art.
Supported by an Art Fund Jonathan Ruffer curatorial grant, the exhibition brings together work by more than 70 artists working from 1850 to the present, and highlights the many connections between the author, her contemporaries and those who share an affinity with her work.
Touring from Tate St Ives, it will continue later in 2018 to The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge (2 Oct-9 Dec).
