Elizabeth Price @ Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester

10 June 2016 - 31 October 2016

Elizabeth Price’s work often represents a dialogue between the virtual realm of film and the physical world of museum artifacts. In this highly original exhibition, In a Dream You Saw a Way to Survive and Were Full of Joy, she stages an ‘austere melodrama’, encompassing a vast repertoire of images of the reclining or recumbent body by many artists – in states of weariness, sleep, stupor, reverie, mourning, death and erotic transport or languor.
The exhibition features seventy artists including: Constantin Brancusi, Edward Burra, Alice Channer, John Flaxman, Edward Onslow Ford, Henry Fuseli, Rodney Graham, Anthea Hamilton, Richard Hamilton, Jenny Holzer, Hilary Lloyd, The Lumière Brothers, Giulio Paolini, Carolee Schneemann, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Andy Warhol, and Francesca Woodman.
