This major exhibition examines how masculinity has been coded, interpreted and socially constructed from the 1960s to the present day through film and photography. It examines representations of masculinity, bringing together over 50 international artists, photographers and filmmakers, including Laurie Anderson, Sunil Gupta, Rotimi Fani-Kayode, Isaac Julien and Catherine Opie. In the wake of #MeToo, the image of masculinity has been put under the spotlight, and concepts of toxic and fragile masculinity have infiltrated our society. This exhibition traces the often complex and sometimes contradictory representations of masculinities, and how they have developed and evolved over time. It addresses themes of power, patriarchy, queer identity, racial politics, women's perceptions of men, hypermasculine stereotypes, tenderness and family, and examines the critical role that photography and film have played in shaping how masculinities are imagined and understood in contemporary culture.
