Helen Cammock
October 13, 2019–February 16, 2020

Helen Cammock, winner of the 7th Max Mara Art Prize for Women and nominee for the 2019 Turner Prize, after a premiere at Whitechapel Gallery in London will be presenting her new exhibition Che si può fare with a set up adapted to the different space of the Collection. The exhibition includes a film, a series of vinyl cut prints, a screen-printed frieze, and a research room with books and objects collected during her six-month Italian residency. The show will also include an additional piece, an artist’s book made in July at the Istituto Centrale della Grafica in Rome. These works by Helen Cammock interweave women’s stories of loss and resilience with seventeenth-century Baroque music by female composers, exploring the concept of lament in women’s lives across histories and geographies.
