SEXUALITY, IDENTITY AND AMBIGUITY

A revealing gallery tour that considers portrayals of gender and identity in our paintings. Consider issues such as the ‘effeminate’ pose of Alexander the Great, the ambiguous body of Beccafumi’s nymph and the unsettling nudes in Francis Bacon’s Two Figures in a Room.
