Gillian Wearing, Me as Dürer, 2018.

The Cincinnati Art Museum presents a major exhibition featuring the world premier of Gillian Wearing’s four latest works, including a video made in collaboration with the advertising firm Wieden+Kennedy. The new self-portraits also shown in the exhibition are developments in an ongoing series of photographs in which Wearing inhabits the personas of other artists using masks and elaborate staging. In her new pictures Wearing engages with figures including Albrecht Dürer and Marcel Duchamp – both of whom have special relevance to the collection of the Cincinnati Art Museum. These works are presented alongside three major pieces from earlier in Wearing’s career. The exhibition is the Cincinnati Art Museum’s contribution to the 2018 FotoFocus Biennial: Open Archive, the largest photography and lens-based biennial in America.

Exhibition Dates: Through December 30, 2018
