Just Look at Yourself! brings together self-portraits by 65 artists who responded to a call to artists, and explores and expands upon the concept of self-portraiture. Works in the exhibition represent a range of approaches and media, from the traditional “head shot” to pieces that are less literal and more experimental as self-representations. Are we really what we eat? How are we defined by the roles we play? How many “I” are there? Does a self-portrait have to be recognizable? What is the minimum of information needed to become a unique image of me? These are just some of the questions asked by the artists in Just Look at Yourself!. Several of them will participate in a roundtable discussion on Sunday, September 27 at 2pm. This event is free for members or with gallery admission.
