Curators Kyle Chayka and Marina Galperina will present National #Selfie Portrait Gallery, an installation of 19 emerging artists from the EU and the US who have created short-form videos engaging with the medium of the “selfie,” the omnipresent slang for digital self-portraits found across all social networks. Self-portraiture has a long artistic heritage, with devotees including Rembrandt, the compulsive self-documentarian, Courbet, who styled himself a suave Bohemian, and van Gogh, the fragile genius, bandaged at the ear. Today, the genre belongs to anyone with a camera. Self-portraiture is the most democratic creative medium available, both as a performative outlet for the social self and an intimate vehicle of personal catharsis, for artists and non-artists alike.
