In My Shoes. Art and the Self since the 1990s

About

In My Shoes. Art and the Self since the 1990s

Self-portraiture has provided a source of inspiration to artists throughout history, and in recent years many artists have revolutionised and extended the genre by incorporating action, performance, narrative and explorations of identity.

This Arts Council touring exhibition offers a timely opportunity to consider the legacies of the so-called 'Young British Artists' including Tracey Emin, Sarah Lucas and Gavin Turk, who received international attention for putting themselves in the frame with bold and confrontational works.
