Gillian Wearing

The Whitechapel Gallery presents the first international survey of Turner Prize-winning British artist Gillian Wearing’s photographs and films which explore the public and private lives of ordinary people.
Fascinated by how people present themselves in front of the camera in fly-on-the-wall documentaries and reality TV, Gillian Wearing explores ideas of personal identity through often masking her subjects and using theatre’s staging techniques.
This major exhibition surveys Wearing’s work from the early photographs Signs that Say What You Want Them to Say and Not Signs that Say What Someone Else Wants You to Say (1992–3) to her latest video Bully (2010) and also includes several new photographs made specially for the Whitechapel Gallery exhibition.

Duration 28 March 2012 - 17 June 2012
Times Tuesday to Sunday 11am - 6pm. Open to 9pm on Thursday.
Cost Tickets: £9.50/£7.50 concs
Venue Whitechapel Gallery
