Photo Gallery: HERSTORY, Touchstone, Rochdale
From Turin to Rochdale, nearly a half-century of work by game-changing, female artists – drawn from the collection of world-renowned collector and philanthropist Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo – will form HERSTORY: Women Artists from the Collection of Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, a timely and ideologically-charged exhibition opening at Touchstones Rochdale, Greater Manchester.
Artists included are Gillian Wearing, Sarah Lucas and Sam Taylor-Johnson in sight of artefacts from the gallery’s social history collection, powerful pairings connect the ideas woven through each artwork with poignant echoes of gender inequality, objectification of the female body, inspirational challenges to patriarchal norms and Rochdale’s own radical, feminist past.
