Join Trish Morrissey and curator Kate Best to find out more about the artist’s career and her survey exhibition Trish Morrissey: Autofictions – Twenty years of photography and film. There will be a book signing session afterwards.
The first major UK survey of work by Trish Morrissey, the exhibition brings together photographs and films spanning more than twenty years of the artist’s career and will be the UK premiere of several bodies of work, including Morrissey’s new film Eupnea (2023).
Morrissey came to prominence in the early 2000s among a generation of female photographers working with staged photography, often putting themselves in the picture. Throughout her career, the artist has combined performance, photography, and film to play real and fictional characters. Using herself, and in collaboration with others, Morrissey’s practice explores historic and contemporary ideas about women, family and the body.
Free, booking recommended via Art Tickets.
