Portraits in the 21st Century

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.
