SELF: Portraits of Artists in Their Absence.
January 29 – May 3, 2015
Artists have created self-portraits for centuries, in part to ensure presence in their absence. Self explores the relationship artists have with their own image and how self-representation has evolved over the past 200 years. In our age of compulsive self-celebration, it is an especially compelling moment to examine this enduring artistic genre.
The exhibition is organized by Maurizio Pellegrin, Creative Director; Diana Thompson, Curator of the Collection; and Filippo Fossati, Curator at Large.
Artists Include: Marina Abramović, Ivan Le Lorraine Albright, Boushra Almutawakel, Vincenzo Amato, William Anastasi, Lyle Ashton Harris, John Baldessari, Barry X Ball, Will Barnet, Jay Batlle, Cecilia Beaux, Thomas Hart Benton, Ellen Berkenblit, Ernest L.
