People who have saved this event:



This exhibition brings together a diverse group of artists who engage with the history and iconography of portraiture to create works that relate less to specific individuals and more to contemporary issues around identity, history, culture and representation. Working in a wide range of media including painting, photography, performance and installation, the artists adopt strategies including veiling, distortion and disguise to create challenging and compelling works of art.
