One of the characteristic features of women's self-portraiture lies in the production of imagery which suggest the shifting and provisional nature of identity, rather than its unity or fixity.
The Shifting Subjects exhibition brings two iconic photographic self-portraits by Sarah Lucas created in the 1990's as part of the then emergent Young British Artists movement, to be considered alongside recent autobiographical artworks by contemporary women artists.
