Opening Night: Friday 8 September, 5.30pm – 8pm, FREE

Laura Swanson: American photographer Laura Swanson makes her UK debut. Swanson explores the conventions of portraiture, the complications of representing and looking at different bodies and how the cultural dominance of the selfie has transformed portraiture.

Claude Cahun: French photographer Claude Cahun (1894–1954) was a ground-breaking artist ahead of her time, challenging ideas of gender, identity and traditional portraiture in these now famous images. Born Lucy Schwob, she adopted the pseudonym in 1917 to free herself from the narrow confines of gender.
