Eye to I: Self Portraits from the National Portrait Gallery

Mar. 24-Jun.14, 2020
Boca Raton Museum of Art

Eye to I is especially appropriate in the age of the “selfie.” Organized and drawn from the collection of the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, this exhibition explores how American artists have portrayed themselves through painting, drawing, photography, and video since the beginning of the 20th century. Artists in the exhibition approach self-representation from realist renderings to alter-egos that can reveal or obfuscate their inner lives.

 

This exhibition has been organized by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C. and supported in part by Mr. and Mrs. Michael H. Podell.
