EXHIBIT: Smithsonian: “Portraiture Now: Staging the Self” (12-1pm, National Portrait Gallery) – This new exhibit features the work of six contemporary U.S. Latino artists—David Antonio Cruz, Carlee Fernandez, María Martínez-Cañas, Rachelle Mozman, Karen Miranda Rivadeneira, and Michael Vasquez—who present identities theatrically, in order to rid portraiture of its reassuring tradition that fixes a person in space and time. These artists use their work to focus on personal or family issues, telling stories that they have remembered or imagined from their past, manipulating images of themselves or superimposing portraits of their loved ones on their own. Like actors searching for a character, they are looking both for their unique identity traits and for shared traits. In the process, portraiture loses its feeling of certainty and instead becomes a map for finding oneself and others.
WORKSHOP: Leica Portfolio Reviews (12-5pm, Leica Store Washington DC) – Jennifer Schwartz (Crusade for Art) and David Bram (Fraction Magazine) will be available for 20-minute portfolio review sessions at Leica Store. Tickets are $40, and you can register with Jennifer Schwartz or David Bram.
