This exhibition presents a candid portrait of some of the most influential artists who shaped visual culture in the 20th and 21st centuries, photographed within the inner sanctum of their studios, framed by works in progress and surrounded by the tools and detritus of their art making. Magnum photographers have built an invaluable record of the lives of artists from the 1940s till today, applying their skills to portraying the avant-garde in modern to contemporary art, from a different angle than that of the “white cube”.
