Exposed: The Naked Portrait at the Laing Art Gallery


The naked human figure has been a preoccupation of art from prehistory to the present day. This cross-period exhibition of unclothed portraits from the National Portrait Gallery collection raises questions about identity and gender, the real and ideal. It includes portraits of famous sitters such as Naomi Campbell, Germaine Greer, John Lennon and Yoko Ono. This exhibition is curated by the National Portrait Gallery in association with the Laing Art Gallery.
