Meryl McMaster: As Immense as the Sky

Ikon Gallery, Birmingham

4 Dec 2019 - 23 Feb 2020

This is the first UK survey for the Canadian artist, who stages photographic self-portraits in which she wears elaborate costumes in dramatic outdoor settings. The playful and unsettling results reflect an ongoing interest in her dual heritage and the idea of Canada. Find out more from Ikon’s website.
