NOW OPEN Francesca Woodman in “The Performative Self-Portrait” at RISD Museum, Providence, Rhode Island, May 13-November 12, 2023

May 13, 2023 through November 12, 2023
RISD Museum

From capturing themselves in shadows and reflections to trying on alternative or speculative identities, The Performative Self-Portrait explores the body as material and medium and photography as vehicle to consider ways artists use self-portraiture to enact the self, question history, and articulate identity. Made between 1930 and the present, works in the exhibition range from new acquisitions to older works on view for the first time. Three of Woodman’s photographs are included alongside works by Cindy Sherman, Robert Mapplethorpe, Claude Cahun, Carolee Schneeman, Vito Acconci, and Laura Aguilar among others, all from the museum’s collection.
