Hunter Reynolds | DRAG: Self-portraits and Body Politics | Hayward Gallery

July 28, 2018

Hales Gallery is delighted to announce the inclusion of work by Hunter Reynolds in the exhibition DRAG: Self-portraits and Body Politics at the Hayward Gallery. 

 

DRAG: Self-portraits and Body Politics is an exhibition of radical self-portraiture from the 1960s to the present day. The free exhibition features the work of artists who have used drag to explore or question identity, gender, class, politics and race. Alongside key figures such as Pierre Molinier, VALIE EXPORT, Robert Mapplethorpe and Cindy Sherman, the exhibition also includes self-portraits by a younger generation of contemporary artists who have recently embraced drag as an art form, including Adam Christensen and Victoria Sin.

 

Rather than offering a linear or chronological narrative, this exhibition aims to present a multitude of voices that explore cultural shifts of the past 50 years and touch on topics that include the 1980s AIDS crisis and post-colonial theory. Focused on photography but spanning a variety of other media, DRAG is accompanied by a programme of talks and performances.
