Seven Days…a Halloween Mini-series!

Gillian Wearing is a consummate costume professional. In order to transform herself into various family members for the larger-than-life works in her “Album” series, Wearing worked with with a talented team (including former employees of Madame Tussauds) to create the masks, silicon prostheses, wigs (complete with human hair), and bodysuits the artist wears in these eerie photographs. All six works are currently on view at the Gallery as part of DECADE: Contemporary Collecting 2002–2012 if you are up for some in-person creepiness.
