Join curator, writer and Founding Editor of 1000 Words Magazine, Tim Clark for a walk-through tour of Masculinities: Liberation through Photography

The talk will offer an arc of the exhibition’s key themes, such as fatherhood and family, the female gaze, hyper-masculine codes, patriarchy, the black body and queer identities.
