The re-staging of past events presents an opportunity for contemporary photographers to highlight underrepresented stories and to critique established narratives. 'Encore: Reenactement in Contemporary Photography' brings together works by seven artists who have employed the idea of reenactment in their respective practices.
Presented in three topics - personal history, political history, and art history-the works showcase very different approaches to engaging with the past. Artists on display include Eileen Cowin, Christina Fernandez, Samuel Fosso, Yasumasa Morimura, Yinka Shonibare CBE, Gillian Wearing, and Qiu Zhijie-all.
