Masculinities: Liberation through PhotographyBringing together over 300 works by more than 50 pioneering international artists, the Barbican surveys the representation of masculinity across several mediums in its new exhibition, Masculinities: Liberation through Photography. An exploration of how masculinity is experienced, performed and socially constructed, it demonstrates how both photography and film have played a central role in influencing how masculinities are understood in contemporary society. Topics covered include queer identity, the black body, power and patriarchy and fatherhood and family.

Ugly or not, this multi-faceted performance and arts venue is truly wondrous. Open 363 days a year, it offers the most diverse program of any London venue. More about Barbican Centre
