The first retrospective in the UK of artist Anna Boghiguian
Anna Boghiguian takes her inspiration from her deep interest in history, philosophy and continuous travels around the world. Her work comments on the human condition through the perspectives of global trade, mass migration, colonialism and war.
This exhibition features large-scale installations of cut-out paper figures, alongside paintings, collages and books, as well as components of the artist’s studio brought to St Ives.
While addressing current global concerns, the exhibition resonates with the local context of St Ives as an artists’ community, and Cornwall’s industrial history.
This is the first opportunity to see a significant survey of her work in the UK.
The exhibition is curated by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Director, and Marianna Vecellio, Curator, Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli-Torino in collaboration with Tate St Ives.
