‘Masculinities,’ featuring works by Catherine Opie and Akram Zaatari is now on show as part of Arles, les Rencontres de la Photographie 2021.
“This exhibition charts the often complex and sometimes contradictory representations of masculinities, and how they have developed and evolved over time. Touching on themes including power, patriarchy, queer identity, racial politics, female perceptions of men, hypermasculine stereotypes, tenderness and the family, the exhibition examines the critical role photography and film have played in the way masculinities are imagined and understood in contemporary culture." - Text from the exhibition website.
Curated by Alona Pardo with support from Fluxus Art Projects. Exhibition organised by the Barbican.
Exhibition dates: 4 July - 26 September 2021.
