The Self-Portrait: Antiquity to #Selfie

Tuesday, January 21st, 6:00-8:00PM

High Line Nine

507 West 27th Street

New York, NY

From the classical and literal to the digital and errant, self-portraiture has been a persistent subject throughout art history. But an artist's exercises in self-representation rarely result in an impartial likeness. In this evening curated by Sugarlift and Juxtapoz in conjunction with ME: An Exhibition of Contemporary Self-Portraiture, three experts investigate the self-portrait through historic, artistic and cultural lenses.

Speakers:

  • Carlo McCormick, Art & Culture Critic and Author
  • Calvine Harvey, Historian and VP of Old Masters Painting at Sotheby’s
  • Jenny Morgan, Contemporary Painter

About the Exhibition

Who are you? Is your inner character revealed, like the ancient Greeks believed, by the composition of your features? Or does the answer have nothing to do with your face? Twenty-three artists explore the question in ME: An exhibition of contemporary self-portraiture highlighting the intersections between psyche, mirror and other.

Curated by Sugarlift and Juxtapoz’s Sasha Bogojev and presented at New York’s High Line Nine, the exhibition runs January 16–30th, 2020 and will feature paintings and drawings by 23 international artists as well as a series of talks exploring self-portraiture throughout art history and contemporary culture.

Artists: Adam Lupton, Aleah Chapin, Cesar Piette, Christian Rex van Minnen, Colin Chillag, Danica Lundy, Deng Shiqing, Dina Brodsky, Esiri Erheriene-Essi, Esteban Ocampo-Giraldo, Guno Park, Hiba Schahbaz, Jean-Pierre Roy, Jenny Morgan, Justin Liam O’Brien, Koichi Sato, Marcelo Daldoce, Maya Mason, Nicolas V. Sanchez, Paco Pomet, Prudence Flint, Sean Norvet, Tony Toscani
