Beginning with such icons of American art as Andy Warhol, Alex Katz, or Cindy Sherman, this exhibition traces the evolution of how many of the most prominent artists of our times have presented the self in not only painting and photography, but in 3-D and virtual or internet-based works of art. Spanning more than 40 years, this exhibition takes the tradition of portraiture as it evolved in the late 20th century and catapults it to the present. Representing emerging and established artists with stellar works from prominent museums, private collections, and artist’s studios, this exhibition examines the multi-faceted and ever-changing complexity of how the self is perceived and presented to the world. Artists from Virginia, as well as national and international artists, are represented in what promises to be one of the highlights of the 2014 exhibition season.
