The Art of the Self

  • Golden West College Art Gallery (map)

Curated by Evan Senn

Exhibition: November 1 - December 15, 2018
Reception: Thursday November 1, 5-8pm

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.
