Self Evidence – Photographs by Woodman, Arbus and Mapplethorpe at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery explores how three of the 20th century’s most influential photographers addressed issues of self-expression, performance and truth. The exhibition includes over 40 works, from Francesca Woodman’s experimental images to Diane Arbus’ raw, compassionate documentary photography to touching self-portraits tracking the final years of Robert Mapplethorpe’s life. The works are drawn from Artist Rooms, a touring collection of over 1,600 works of modern and contemporary art jointly owned by the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate on behalf of the nation.
