"Self as Object: Perspectives of Identity"

Friday, March 05 - 1:00PM to 2:45PM
Salon A

We live during an age of memoir with a cultural desire to share
our physical and intimate selves. Self-portrait as a revelation
still holds strong currency even as belief in the image becomes
diluted by the digital age. What amounts to truthfulness is shifting
and self-exposure has become a normalizing and connective
event. Through self-portraiture artists have explored everything
from the psychological to racial and body issues to personal
narratives to aging. This panel will explore the diversity of approaches
to self-portraiture as well as its usefulness as a method
for making artwork, and as a teaching tool.
