Virginia Woolf: an exhibition inspired by her writings

  • 26 May — 16 September 2018 *on now

This major exhibition shows how Virginia Woolf’s perspectives on feminism and creativity have remained relevant to a community of creative women across time: visual artists working in photography, painting, sculpture and film who have sought to record the vast scope of female experience and to shape alternative ways for women to be.

It acts as a lens through which ideas around landscape, domesticity and identity – recurring ideas in Woolf’s writing – have been dealt with across a century of art, through the work of 80 artists including Barbara Hepworth, Vanessa Bell, Preunella Clough, Dora Carrington, Claude Cahun, Eileen Agar, Gluck, Sandra Blow and more.

This exhibition has been organised by Tate St Ives in association with Pallant House Gallery and The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
