Blind Star is an ongoing series of works by Douglas Gordon in which he ‘blinds’ famous Hollywood actors and actresses – challenging the role of publicity photographs to create uncanny, sinister portraits.

Join a member of staff from Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery to find out more about the selected works that appear in the Searching for Genius exhibition as well as some of the stars they feature.
