In conjunction with Aperture‘s Virginia Woolf-inspired ORLANDO exhibition and edition, Tilda Swinton—currently co-starring in Joanna Hogg‘s brilliant new film The Souvenir—and B. Ruby Rich will talk about “images and writings that celebrate gender fluidity, curiosity, and life without limits.”*
Virginia Woolf‘s 1928 novel Orlando—inspired by her lover Vita Sackville-West—was made into a 1992 film written and directed by Sally Potter, starring Tilda Swinton, Quentin Crisp, and Jimmy Somerville.
