Taking a theme that has predominated arts long history, this exhibition is exploring how the self is represented in these turbulent times.
A portrait is generally not a snapshot but a composed image seeking to display the likeness, personality or mood of the subject but what is the
'self' in the digital era when we curate our identities online and how can a portrait go beyond it's original role in the modern day?
The show features 40 artists from around the globe whose work explores these questions at a time when our personal and social identities are under threat and gives a portrayal of a moment in time where our sense of self has never been so uncertain.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter our open call and to all the artists who are taking part.
