Gillian Wearing and Claude Cahun: Behind the mask, another mask

9th - 29th May 2017

at National Portrait Gallery, London

Explore parallels between the work of French Surrealist Claude Cahun and Turner Prize-winning British artist Gillian Wearing, brought together for the first time in this new exhibition.

Though born seventy years apart, both artists share a fascination with the self-portrait and use the self-image, through the medium of photography, to explore themes around identity and gender, masquerade and performance.
