Life in Motion:
Egon Schiele / Francesca Woodman

24 May – 23 September 2018
Tate Liverpool | Liverpool, UK

Life in Motion combines the work of radical Austrian expressionist Egon Schiele (1890 – 1918) and American photographer Francesca Woodman (1958 – 1981), exploring the remarkable ability of these artists to capture and suggest movement in order to create dynamic, extraordinary compositions that highlight the expressive nature of the human body.

The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to see a large number of Schiele's drawings in the North of England, bringing attention to the artist's technical virtuosity, distinctive vision and unflinching depictions of the human figure.

Working at the other end of the 20th century, Woodman's photographs help to refocus perceptions of Schiele's work, highlighting how his practices and ideas continue to have a relevance to contemporary art. The exhibition will include images from Woodman's My House Series, Providence, Rhode Island, 1976 and her Eel Series, Roma, May 1977 - August 1978.
