The work of legendary photographer Diane Arbus (1923- 1971) can be seen at Kirkcaldy Galleries from 14 February until 31 May. Arbus challenged concepts of identity, beauty and normality. Her photography revealed the complexities of human nature and relationships, making the ordinary extraordinary and the misunderstood familiar.
Featuring twenty of her seminal pieces, this exhibition explores how her work reflected the social, political and economic changes taking place throughout the United States between the 1950s and 1970s. The works on display are taken from ARTIST ROOMS, a collection of modern and contemporary art acquired for the nation by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland through the generosity of Anthony d’Offay with additional support from funders, including the Art Fund.
The ARTIST ROOMS tour programme, now in its seventh year, is showing at 17 museums and galleries across the UK in 2015. Admission is free.
