Selfies is the first group exhibition from The Collective - an ensemble of contemporary artists who have produced a series of self portraits in a range of styles and media.
Self portraiture has been a mainstay of Western art for centuries, and raise many intriguing question. How do artists express their sense of self through their chosen medium? Are we seeing them as they see themselves, or are we observing a construct? Is the self portrait a window to an inner world, or is it merely the mark the artist chooses to present?
Selfies examines these questions with a diverse range of works that reinvigorate the tradition of the self portrait, dragging it into the 21st century and allowing it to take hold of a new audience.
Featuring artworks by: Teri Anderson, Jake Edey, Sam Eyles, Dan Haycock, Marianna Peltonen, Marianne Pink, Liucija Saltonaite.
Location: 2nd Floor Boulevard, Central House
Date: Tuesday 11 March 2014, 11am - 5pm
