REPRESENTING SELF:
PORTRAITS FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION

February 2 – May 20, 2018


This exhibition examines the evolution of portraiture as a vehicle for the representation of self. Works ranging from early sixteenth-century society portraits to large-format contemporary photographs explore ways that artists convey information about their sitters, and themselves. Variously considered as expressions of social status or values, as reflections of socio-political anxieties, as formal experiments, or as depictions of psychological or emotional depths, these portraits all have a story to tell. Artists represented in the exhibition include Valérie Belin, Dawoud Bey, George Braque, Jim Dine, Jean-Leon Gerome, Nicolas Maes, Diego Rivera, and Kiki Smith, among others.
