Camden Arts Centre

We were encouraged to go to the exhibition Making and Unmaking, which consists of a grand miscellany of objects – paintings, photographs, a film, fabrics, textiles – assembled and arranged by Duro Olowu upstairs at the Camden Arts Centre (last day Sunday).   The exhibition is said to address ‘issues surrounding cultural identity, sexuality and the representation of the body’, but does so in an admirably undogmatic way, including textiles and jewellery by Anni Albers, a series of strange, surreal, self-portrait photographs by Claude Cahun (1928), tapestries by Brent Wadden, and Vues de dos by Malick Sidibé.

This is the only piece I could photograph by Anya Gallacio in the garden:-
