Herstory: Women Artists from the Collection of Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo

Sat 28 Jul – Sat 29 Sep 2018
Contemporary Forward, Touchstones Rochdale, Greater Manchester

Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo began collecting contemporary art in 1992 and is one of the most respected private collectors in Europe. Having now amassed approximately 1,500 artworks by many of the major names in international contemporary art, one of her early interests was in supporting women artists.

Drawing on her collection, Herstory features artworks by some of the leading female artists of the last forty years including Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, Sherrie Levine, Mona Hatoum and Sarah Lucas, and explores how they have radically altered the face of contemporary art.

In addition to the works from Re Rebaudengo’s collection, the exhibition showcases select items from across our own rich art, museum and local history collections offering further resonance to some of the issues being addressed.
