Drag: Self-portraits and Body Politics

Hayward Gallery, Southbank Centre, 337-338 Belvedere Rd

With a focus on photography (but not only) 30 artists use drag to question identity, gender, class and politics, from the 1960s to the present day, with established names such as Robert Mapplethorpe and Cindy Sherman as well as a younger generation such as Adam Christensen and Victoria Sin who all affirm drag as an art form.

The exhibition explores cultural shifts of the past 50 years and touch on topics that include the 1980s AIDS crisis and post-colonial theory in a non-linear narrative.
