Exhibition details

Presented by Art360, in association with DRAF, Shooting Performance was a special exhibition of Edward Woodman's work across two decades of documentary photography.

One of the most important photographers in the history of British contemporary art, Edward Woodman has been photographing artists and their work for over four decades, capturing historic moments and influential figures. Shooting Performance included photographs of important performances and installations by artists such as Stuart Brisley, Anya Gallaccio, David Medalla and Cornelia Parker amongst others from the 1980s and 1990s.

The exhibition was curated by Gilane Tawadros and Judy Adam. Thanks to the Chief Curator, Vincent Honoré, and all the team at DRAF.

As part of the exhibition, Phyllida Barlow spoke with Gilane Tawadros and David Ward about Edward Woodman's two decades of contemporary art photography.
