"Fashioning Masculinities, The Art of Menswear" explores how men's fashion has changed over the centuries and how designers, tailors and artists, and their clients and sitters, have constructed and performed masculinity, and unpicked it at the seams.

The exhibition showcases the variety of possible masculinities across the centuries from the Renaissance to the global contemporary: from looks by Harris Reed, Gucci, Grace Wales Bonner and Raf Simons, to paintings by Sofonisba Anguissola and Joshua Reynolds, contemporary artworks by David Hockney and Omar Victor Diop, to an extract from an all-male dance performance by Matthew Bourne's New Adventures.
