DZINE Gallery is pleased to present the opening of #portrait, our third group exhibition. The portrait has long been used as a vehicle for allegory, an expression of power and propaganda, and as advancing cultural aesthetic ideals and gender norms. How do people present themselves to the world? How does the artist or photographer approach the portrait to reveal the essence or inner psychology of a subject, or their own political, social, spiritual or aesthetic concerns? The nine artists in this exhibition confront these questions, exploring the contemporary portrait in various media, including painting, tintypes, photography, staged narrative and video.
DZINE welcomes San Francisco based designer Chris Baisa as our featured designer for the exhibition, inaugurating our representation of Delinear, his line of modern, handcrafted textiles, in our showroom.
