All by my Selfie

All by my selfie - a nod to the title of Nan Goldin's slide installation - brings together a body of some of the most iconic works in the Frac's collection . It evokes a time in the not so distant past, before the advent of social media, when imperfection, joy, intimacy and humour still held a vital place in the relationship we have with ourselves. Through the wide variety of works on display, we rediscover humanity stripped bare of artifice, free from the vain quest for illusory perfection.

Access

Open every day except Monday from noon to 6pm and when dining in the restaurant on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
