About the event
The importance of individuality grew in popularity after the Renaissance and with it, self-portraiture exploded into genre of its own. Today, self-portraiture still thrives as a means of practice as well as exercising self-examination and introspection. “The Art of the Self” will examine the practice of self-portraiture through the lens and eyes of contemporary artists, exploring the significance of the age-old tradition and the therapeutic power held within.
There is nothing more intimate than our own perspective on ourselves. The artists working today in contemporary art will show us through the tradition of self portraits how they see themselves, both literally and metaphorically.
Exhibiting artists will include: Kent Twitchell, Kevin Stewart-Magee, Bret Price, Sarah Elise Abramson, Parker Jackson, F. Scott Hess, Jennifer King, Michael Ziobrowski, Parker Day, Devora Orantes, Suzanne Walsh, Michael C. Hsiung, Yuki Toy, Kerri Sabine-Wolf, Suzanne Shifflett, Tony Pinto, Peter Zokosky, Shay Bredimus, Serena Potter, Diana Markessinis, Kevin Nocerino, Dwora Fried, Matthew Hance, Michelle Lepori, Virginia Broersma, Andres Saucedo, James Thistlethwaite, Chloe Allred, Eric L.
