EXHIBITIONS

Self-Portraits 9th

19.07.2017 to 19.08.2017



The "Self-Portraits" Project is a collection of international artworks developed under the direction of Argentine artist Alicia Candiani whose original idea was to bring together artists from diverse cultures to visually explore the theoretically complex issues of 'self-representation’ as a means of identity.  After the launch date in 2006, Alicia has been invited by nine art institutions from Argentina,  Mallorca y Cuenca in Spain, Brazil, Canada, Sweden as well as Kansas City, Montclair and Anchorage, Alaska in the United States to execute the project.

The current exhibition (session nine in the series) was made possible through the generous funding  from  Montclair State University in New Jersey. The works on display were produced during Candiani’s "Scholar in Residence" sponsored by the Global Education Center in Spring 2016 where she  conducted a  workshop with students. The mixed media portrait images brings together the works of nine students and faculty artists from diverse backgrounds and was executed under the co-direction of Ms. Candiani and Professor Catherine Bebout.

The works will be on display from July 19 to August 19 and then travel to the MSU campus for an exhibition opening in the Finley gallery beginning September 12, 2017.
