Lee Miller at Farley Farm
Sunday 24 June – Sunday 2 September
Lee Miller was one of the most remarkable photographers of the twentieth century. This selection of images reveals her everyday life with her husband Roland Penrose at Farleys where they entertained their many famous friends. Here also she eventually recovered from the traumatic years of World War 2 during which she produced some of her most important and challenging work. This selection of photographs includes images of Max Ernst, André Masson, Man Ray, Paul Eluard and Pablo Picasso in a Farley Arts Trust touring exhibition.

Claude Cahun – Beneath This Mask
Saturday 8 September – Sunday 11 November
This Hayward Gallery Touring exhibition features the work of French female photographer Claude Cahun (1894–1954), whose practice investigates gender and identity. Cahun achieved posthumous fame for her elusive self-portraits in which she assumed multiple personae. The exhibition contains 42 contemporary giclee prints made from scans of Cahun’s original photographic self-portraits, as the majority of the negatives have been lost.
