An Exhibition Inspired by her Writings
Featuring significant and lesser-known works of art from 1850 to the present, this exhibition explores the work of artists inspired by the writing of this celebrated author. Virginia Woolf, who would become known for classic texts including To the Lighthouse and the pioneering feminist text A Room of One’s Own, spent much of her childhood in St Ives. This exhibition is led by her writing, which will act as a prism through which to explore feminist perspectives on landscape, domesticity and identity in modern and contemporary art – with works by more than 80 artists, including Laura Knight, Gwen John, Vanessa Bell, Winifred Nicholson, Sandra Blow, Barbara Hepworth, Claude Cahun and Dora Carrington. The exhibition will travel to Pallant House in May, and The Fitzwilliam Museum in October. Find out more about the Virginia Woolf exhibition from Tate St Ives’ website.
