Alice in Wonderland: Tate Liverpool

Saw an interesting show at Tate Liverpool which looks at the historical origins of Lewis Carrol's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and how these books have influenced artists ever since. Includes work by Francesca Woodman, Kiki Smith, Yayoi Kusama, Samantha Sweeting (below), Gary Hill and Duane Michaels. Also work from Dali and Magritte. A curiouser and curiouser mix of Dodgson's Victorian photos, Alice curios and 1970s conceptual art. Well worth a visit.
