Francesca Woodman

Francesca Woodman

This month as part of the Your Gallery 3 series, we would like to thank writer and curator Pádraic E. Moore for contributing to the series via Twitter, suggesting that we look back at the 2001 exhibition of photographs by the artist Francesca Woodman (1958-1981). One of the nine iterations of the exhibition curated by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris in 1998, it also toured until 2002 to the Kunsthal, Rotterdam; Centro Cultural de Belém, Lisbon; The Photographers’ Gallery, London; Centro Cultural Tecla Sala, L’Hospitalet, Barcelona; Carla Sozzani Gallery, Milan; PhotoEspaña, Centro Cultural Conde Duque, Madrid; and Recontres Internationales de la Photographie, Arles.

On this occasion Maggie Weber, masters student at Trinity College Dublin, has created this page as part of the Public History and Cultural Heritage (M.Phil.) internship programme with the School of Histories and Humanities. The page includes a brief description of the exhibition and an analysis of some images that were part of the show. We have also linked some of the reviews from the time at Circa Magazine and The Irish Times. We are extremely thankful to Maggie for her insightful research and contribution.

We welcome you to suggest what you might like to see from us during this time. More than ever, we want to give voice to our audience and as such we have designed this section of our programming for you. If you would like to suggest your favourite exhibition, artwork or artists that you remember from the DHG archive, please email our Learning and Engagement Curator, Fernando Fernando Sánchez-Migallón Cano.
