Portraiture Now: Framing Memory

May 25, 2007 – January 6, 2008

Museum: Portrait Gallery

Location: 1st Floor

This is the second exhibition in the ongoing Portraiture Now series, highlighting contemporary art that incorporates portraits of iconic figures as a means to explore history and culture. The works of the following five artists -- Brett Cook, Alfredo Arreguin, Kerry James Marshall, Tina Mion, and Faith Ringgold -- broaden our traditional understanding of portraiture by integrating recognizable, remembered likenesses into explorations of personal and public identity. Portraits of such figures as Martin Luther King, Frida Kahlo, Jacqueline Kennedy, Cesar Chavez, and Josephine Baker serve as triggers of memory for both artist and audience.
