Gillian Wearing And Claude Cahun: Behind The Mask, Another MaskThe National Portrait Gallery brings together the work of French surrealist Claude Cahun and British contemporary artist Gillian Wearing for the first time this March for its new exhibition, Gillian Wearing and Claude Cahun: Behind the mask, another mask. Despite being born 70 years apart and coming from contrasting backgrounds, remarkable parallels can be drawn between these two artists. Both share a fascination with the self-portrait and both use self-image, through the medium of photography, to explore the fluidity of identity and gender, often playing it out through masquerade and performances.

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
