Strange Worlds: The Vision of Angela Carter


Fiona Robinson


Strange Worlds celebrates the life and work of the hugely influential writer Angela Carter (1940–1992), 25 years after her death, and accompanies a major exhibition of the same name at the RWA (Royal West of England Academy), Bristol. Bringing together art and literature, Strange Worlds explores Carter’s recurring themes of feminism, sexuality and fantasy, through historically significant art works by Marc Chagall, William Holman Hunt, Dame Laura Knight, Leonora Carrington and John Bellany. These historical works sit alongside work by major contemporary artists including Ana Maria Pacheco, Eileen Cooper, Paula Rego and Alice Maher revealing the extent to which Angela Carter’s ideas have indirectly but profoundly influenced twenty-first century culture.
