The National Portrait Gallery has a new exhibit, and it is as timely as it is introspective. Eye to I: Self-Portraits from 1900 to Today examines how people throughout American history have chosen to portray themselves, from early self portraits to today’s selfies on social media platforms. It’s a fascinating glimpse at identity and an important reflection on its evolution in the country’s history.
Contributors include modern art guru Josef Albers, cross-disciplinary artist Patricia Cronin, photographer Imogen Cunningham, and many more. The exhibition opened at the beginning of November, and continues through August of 2019. This exhibition is the final installation on display that concludes the Portrait Gallery’s 50thanniversary celebration, and will be included in the illustrated companion book planned for next year. See this and many other exhibits with a trip to the National Portrait Gallery this holiday season, and as always, enjoy free admission to see its impressive collections.
The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
