IN MY SHOES: ART & THE SELF SINCE THE 1990s
16 February – 12 May
The rise of the ‘selfie’ in contemporary society and the construction of digital identities through social media offers a timely wider context for this exhibition. In My Shoes is an Arts Council Collection touring exhibition exploring the ways in which artists based in the UK have represented themselves in their work since the 1990s.
Encompassing a range of media including film, photography and sculpture, In My Shoes displays work from multiple generations of artists including: Tracey Emin, Sarah Lucas, Gavin Turk, Rachel McLean and Bedwyr Williams. The exhibition concludes with some of the most recent works to enter the Arts Council Collection, a handful of which are on public display for the first time since acquisition.
