Faces Now/Faces Then

BOZAR presents two exhibitions, both related to the portrait.

Faces Now highlights portrait photography in Europe since 1990, a decade in which many photographers rediscovered the genre following the fall of the Berlin Wall. The works of 31 celebrated European photographers such as Tina Barney, Anton Corbijn and Stephan Vanfleteren are on display in the show which asks: what do the face, pose, clothing and backdrop tell us about the person portrayed?

The other exhibition, titled Faces Then, examines Renaissance portraiture from the Netherlands and features 50 portraits by 16th-century masters such as Quentin Metsys, Joos van Cleve and Joachim Beuckelaer.

Tues-Sat 10.00-18.00. Thurs 10.00-21.00
