Beyond the Selfie: Portraits in the 21st Century

May 14, 2016 - October 12, 2016
Perlman Gallery (G368)
Free Exhibition

In an age when anyone with a cell phone can make a self-portrait daily, even instantly, this show will consider a genre that has been important to artists through the ages. Featuring a selection of widely varied 21st-century self-portraits, this exhibition showcases works that are striking for their slowed down, careful, existential examination of the self. Artists working across different media—drawing, painting, photography, print, and sculpture—are featured, including Chuck Close, Stacey Davidson, Nina Katchadourian, Leonardo Lasansky, Glenn Ligon, Cobi Moules, Freya Payne, and Zak Smith.
