Be­hind the Mask, Another Mask

Gil­lian Wear­ing & Claude Cahun

Professional Photography - - Calendar -

This ex­hi­bi­tion brings to­gether the work of French Sur­re­al­ist artist Claude Cahun and Bri­tish con­tem­po­rary artist Gil­lian Wear­ing. Although they were born al­most 70 years apart and came from dif­fer­ent back­grounds, re­mark­able par­al­lels can be drawn: a fas­ci­na­tion with self-por­traits and ex­plo­ration of the themes around iden­tity and gen­der.

Na­tional Por­trait Gallery, Lon­don £12 [9 March un­til 29 May]
