Under Cover: A Secret History Of Cross–Dressers

Friday 23 February 2018 – Sunday 03 June 2018

Exhibition drawn from the extensive personal archives of filmmaker and photography collector SĂ©bastien Lifshitz, this exhibition of amateur 'found' photographs from Europe and America explores gender non-conformity and cross-dressing. Dating from 1880 onwards, the photos are mostly of unnamed and unknown figures and as such offer an unauthorised view into the worlds of individuals and groups choosing to defy gender conventions.
