Francesca Woodman: On Being an Angel at C/O Berlin
RE-OPENED: extended through September 5, 2020
Opened in March, just before the Covid-19 pandemic closed museums internationally, Francesca Woodman: On Being an Angel, a solo exhibition at C/O Berlin Foundation, has recently re-opened and been extended through September 5, 2020.
In the first major institutional exhibition of Francesca Woodman’s work in Germany in more than 25 years, C/O Berlin Foundation presents 102 photographs ranging from 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); Finnish Museum of Photography (2017); and Fundacion Canal, Madrid, Spain (2019).
A fully-illustrated exhibition catalogue—published in English, Swedish, French and Spanish—includes essays by Anna-Karin Palm, Anna Tellgren and George Woodman.
