“Virginia Woolf wrote Orlandoin an attitude of celebration of the oscillating nature of existence. She believed the creative mind to be androgynous. I have come to see Orlandofar less as being about gender than about the flexibility of the fully awake and sensate spirit…
“Where I once assumed it was a book about eternal youth, I now see it as a book about growing up, about learning to live.” — Tilda Swinton*
ORLANDO—the Aperture exhibition inspired by Woolf and curated by Swinton—features the work of Zackary Drucker, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, JamalNxedlana, EllePérez, Walter Pfeiffer, Sally Potter, Viviane Sassen, Collier Schorr, Mickalene Thomas, and Carmen Winant.
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.
