From Turin to Rochdale, nearly half a century of work by game-changing, female artists drawn from the collection of world-renowned collector and philanthropist, Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo will form the enquiring heart of HERSTORY: Women Artists from the Collection of Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, a timely and ideologically-charged exhibition opening at Touchstones Rochdale, Greater Manchester, between Sat 28 Jul – Sat 29 Sep 2018. Displaying many, era-defining works by artists including Gillian Wearing, Sarah Lucas and Sam Taylor-Johnson in sight of artefacts from the gallery’s social history collection, powerful pairings connect the ideas woven through each artwork with poignant echoes of gender inequality, objectification of the female body, inspirational challenges to patriarchal norms and Rochdale’s own radical, feminist past.

Featuring Selected Works by: Vanessa Beecroft, Sadie Benning, Lina Bertucci, Berlinde de Bruyckere, Nan Goldin, Mona Hatoum, Karen Kilimnik, Barbara Kruger, Zoe Leonard, Sherrie Levine, Sarah Lucas, Margherita Manzelli, Eva Marisaldi, Tracey Moffat, Senga Nengudi, Shirin Neshat, Paulina Olowska, Catherine Opie, Cindy Sherman, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Rosemarie Trockel, Andra Ursuta, Gillian Wearing and Lynette Yaidom-Boakye.
