Virginia Woolf: An exhibition inspired by her writings

Tue 2 October 2018 - Sun 9 December 2018

Fitzwilliam Museum

In the centenary of suffrage this exhibition draws attention to the many connections between Virginia Woolf, her contemporaries and those who have been inspired by her work.

Woolf’s writing acts as a prism through which to explore feminist perspectives on landscape, domesticity and identity in modern and contemporary art. This can be seen in the works of modern masters Vanessa Bell, Barbara Hepworth, Gwen John, Winifred Nicholson and Laura Knight; mystics and surrealists such as Dorothea Tanning, Dora Carrington, Louise Bourgeois, Agnes Martin, Ithell Colquhoun and Georgiana Houghton; and the extraordinary work of contemporary artists such as Carol Bove, Tamara Henderson and Penny Slinger.

It was in Cambridge that Woolf delivered a series of lectures that went on to become the extended essay ‘A Room of One’s Own.’ And this venue's showing provides an opportunity to see the original manuscript on display.

The Fitzwilliam Museum is the third and final venue for the exhibition.
