Strange Worlds: The Vision of Angela Carter
January 12, 2017
ACS members Paula Rego, Laura Knight, Ana Marie Pacheco, Eileen Cooper and Marcelle Hanselaar are represented in an exhibition at the RWA exploring the influence of the author and journalist Angela Carter.
Carter was one of the most distinctive literary voices of the past century and the works of the artists featured in the exhibition echo the writer’s recurring themes of feminism, mysticism, sexuality and fantasy.
Spanning a wide time frame, they include paintings, sculptures, drawings, installation, printmaking and film. The exhibition also includes illustrations from Carter’s books, manuscripts, photographs and personal artefacts relating to the writer.
Until 19 Mar
Royal West of England Academy, Queen’s Road, Clifton, Bristol BS8 1PX
