Really interesting exhibition and it's free, too. Visitors will find a great variety of artists of different backgrounds and ages displaying a wonderful mix of portraits. It's worth reading the descriptions to understand the story behind every piece. The exhibition can be pretty crowded but is definitely worth a visit every year.
