Diane Arbus is considered one of the great figures of American art and a pioneer for bridging the gap between documentary and fine art photography. Arbus’ work often portrays individuals creating their own identities and she worked to normalise the representation of marginalised groups. This important body of work is on display at Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum, the works in the exhibition are drawn from the ARTIST ROOMS collection.
The ARTIST ROOMS programme of exhibitions with partner museums and galleries enables access to modern and contemporary art of international significance in rural areas, small towns and major cities throughout the UK.
Exhibitions are happening throughout 2019 and into 2020 in venues large and small, the length and breadth of the country, from Dundee to The Isle of Wight.
Works from the ARTIST ROOMS collection can also be seen at Tate sites in London, Liverpool and St Ives as well as at National Galleries of Scotland sites in Edinburgh.
