Francesca Woodman: On Being An Angel at Fundacion Canal

October 3, 2019 through January 5, 2020
Fundacion Canal

This solo exhibition presents 102 photographs ranging from Francesca Woodman’s small-scale gelatin silver prints to architecturally-scaled caryatids and other diazotypes, along with a selection of video works. This comprehensive survey of Francesca Woodman’s oeuvre thematically approaches photographs from all periods in her short but productive career, showcasing some of her best-known works, presenting series of images in full, and highlighting other works which have been rarely seen.

The exhibition was organized by Anna Tellgren, Curator of Photography at Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden where it originated (2015). It then traveled to Foam, Amsterdam, Netherlands (2016); Fondation Henri Cartier Bresson, Paris, France (2016); Moderna Museet, Malmo, Sweden (2017); and Finnish Museum of Photography (2017). It will travel to C/O Berlin in 2020.

A fully-illustrated exhibition catalogue—published in English, Swedish, French and Spanish—includes essays by Anna-Karin Palm, Anna Tellgren and George Woodman.
