Yesterday, the Portsmouth Museum of Art opened iImage, a fascinating take on contemporary portraiture.
This 21st-century look at what is often considered a traditional artform, explores constantly evolving ideas of self, unexpected interpretations of the notion of portrait, unusual materials and techniques including the use of technology. From artwork created using digital media to interactive video installations and sculpture, iImage re-imagines the portrait.
Artists include: Laylah Ali, Jowhara Al Saud, Jun-Jun Sta. Ana, Aram Bartholl, Christina Bothwell, R. Luke Dubois, Michael Ferris Jr., Noah Kalina, Evan Roth, Daniel Rozin, Martin Schoeller, Do Ho Suh, Robert Wilson, and WK Interact.
The show runs through April 24, 2011.
