  • Overview
  • More Info

This is the first retrospective in the UK of the Egyptian-Canadian artist of Armenian origin, Anna Boghiguian (Cairo, 1946). A close observer of the human condition, the artist draws equally on the past and present, poetry and politics, joyfulness and a critique of the modern world.

This immersive exhibition features dramatic large-scale installations of paintings on sailcloth and papier-mache sculptures, alongside more intimate displays of artist books and elements of her own studio.

For this exhibition, Anna Boghiguian has created a new work inspired by the industrial history of Cornwall; featuring characters, processes and materials drawn from the mining and fishing industries.

The exhibition is curated by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Director, and Marianna Vecellio, Curator, Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli-Torino with Anne Barlow, Director Tate St Ives.

This exhibition was supported by a grant from Canada House
